PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (May 30, 2018) -- The Greater Parkersburg Convention and Visitors Bureau recently published 10,000 updated padded maps featuring regional points of interests, hotels, and area attractions.
The maps are used primarily by front-line tourism employees who interact with travelers on a daily basis at hotels, shops, attractions, and visitor centers. They are distributed to meetings, groups, and sporting events visiting the area, as well as individuals.
The two-sided maps are designed with a full area map on one side and downtown maps of Parkersburg and Marietta on the reverse side.
“Having a quality map for visitors is important for any area,” Greater Parkersburg CVB President Mark Lewis said. “The CVB works hard to maintain just such a map and improve on it each year. Not only are these maps handed out to visitors, we also use them as a welcome piece for incoming sporting and specialty groups year-round.”
Padded in sheets of 25, the maps are convenient for locations to tear off and hand to travelers. The maps are being distributed free of charge, courtesy of the Greater Parkersburg CVB.
