December 07, 2007

Eleven travel agents and tour operators from Denmark, Sweden, and Norway will visit Washington County this weekend. Maryland International Marketing Associates, a group that partners with the Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau, has planned a familiarization tour with stops in Washington County on Saturday.

CVB Member Helen Arthur, of Helen Wheels Tours, will be escorting the group as it tours throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia. The group will visit Baltimore, Annapolis, St. Michael's, Hagerstown and DC.

While in Washington County, the Scandinavian guests will visit Prime Outlets and tour the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts. Shopping was requested by the group because it is very popular with their clientele.

CVB President Tom Riford will be greeting the group at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts. The CVB is providing a catered lunch at the museum in Hagerstown's City Park.

"The visit to the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts was a welcome idea, and ties in well with this group. The museum's founders, William and Anna Singer, spent a great deal of time in Norway and throughout Scandinavia," said CVB Director of Sales Betsy De Vore.

MIMA partners with tourism organizations throughout Maryland to promote the state as a destination for international travelers. The MIMA website, Maryland Wanderings, can be viewed at www.marylandwanderings.com.
