Visit Bucks County hosted its annual Tourism Day Celebration on May 3, 2016. This year, the celebration was held from 4-7 p.m. at Washington Crossing Historic Park. Visit Bucks County kicked off the event by recognizing five inspiring tourism and hospitality professionals in its annual Travel and Tourism Week Awards. VBC also announced 31 spring tourism grant recipients, with over $200,000 allocated for various marketing programs, exhibits and initiatives.

The annual event raises funds for a food bank in style.

 

The perfect venue choice sets the stage for a successful meeting or event. It can entice guests to attend, provide new surroundings that provoke new thought processes and serve up an atmosphere that embraces the theme and objective of an event. That’s a lot to ask from four walls, a fl oor and a ceiling, which is why a new web platform called RoomLeopard is helping planners fi nd function spaces with a lot more character—or as RoomLeopard’s tag line goes, “the best spots in town.”
