At the time of its 25th Annual Meeting & Mixer in previous month, Holly Quinlan, Cobb Travel & Tourism President & CEO explained that tourism has churned out $2.8 billion in terms of economic impact and that figure is anticipated to increase to more than $4 billion by the year 2020.
“It’s amazing to think that 2017 could have been even sweeter than the years before. But this past year has proven to be more than we could ever imagine,” Quinlan said. “Now is the time for us to build on this energy and show others why tourism is such a sustainable industry and so vital to our community.”
On Nov. 14th, the mixer and meeting took place at the Brickyard in Downtown Marietta. Every year, Cobb Travel & Tourism organizes this event to identify the achievements of the organization along with the hospitality community. Numerous political, hospitality and economic development leaders of the country were present at the social gathering. Guests at the event enjoyed food, drinks, giveaways, along with a unique Connect Four networking game prior to the “meeting” portion of the event.
Presentation of the Cobb Travel & Tourism Spot-On Awards, the main incidents of the newly redesigned TravelCobb.org, election of a new board of directors for 2018, followed by a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Cobb’s largest attraction, Six Flags Over Georgia and Hurricane Harbor were part of the meeting.
