PLATTSBURGH — Representatives from the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau are continuing their aggressive outreach, displaying at Ottawa’s Travel and Vacation Show for the second year at the Ottawa Convention Center April 5 and 6. The World is put on display at the Travel and Vacation Show as over 20,000 attendees learn what the Adirondack Coast offers visitors.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the show, which will have over 200 travel and vacation exhibits with over 50 countries represented. Visitors can find a variety of vacation options, from weekend getaways to trips to exciting overseas destinations. At the show, which is being attended by Kristy Kennedy, director of the bureau, and Lisa Dupee, sales coordinator for the Best Western Inn & Suites at Smithfield, the bureau will be touting all the area has to offer to leisure travelers including the Adirondack Coast Wine Trail, cycling, camping, fishing and the Battle of Plattsburgh Bicentennial Commemoration Weekend.

“We are extremely excited to be attending the Ottawa Travel and Vacation Show for the second year,” Kennedy said. “We have had tremendous success in the Montreal market and focusing on Ottawa is the ideal next step for our marketing efforts. We look forward to meeting the attendees and introducing them to the Adirondack Coast.”

The bureau is also continuing its outreach by further improving, the official website for Adirondack Coast tourism. The website now features an Adirondack Coast blog that will deliver a richer user experience, fulfilling more of the traveler’s planning needs. 

The blog has many community contributors writing about their fields of expertise including orchard blogger Shannon Rulfs, manager of Rulfs Orchard; fishing blogger Mickey Maynard, owner of Lake Champlain Angler Fishing Charters; kayak blogger Patty Husband, owner of The Kayak-Shack; resident Adirondack Coast blogger Ben Bradford; and many more.
