Alpharetta and Roswell CVBs Team up to Promote the Holidays
The Alpharetta and Roswell Convention and Visitors Bureaus have teamed up for the second year in a row to celebrate the holiday season with the 2012 promotional campaign, Holidays Along the Divine 9.
Attractions, businesses and churches adjacent to Highway 9 in the downtown areas of Alpharetta and Roswell who are hosting holiday events from Nov. 1-Dec. 31 will be featured in the promotion’s brochure.
The brochure will be available for free at the 11 Georgia Visitor Information Centers and the Alpharetta and Roswell Welcome Centers, sent to both bureaus databases and included in advertising campaigns and distributed to web-based promotions.
“Both Alpharetta and Roswell offer residents and visitors exciting things to see and do year-round but visiting these cities during the holidays makes for a cheerful and spirited occasion,” said Janet Rodgers, president and CEO of the Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Bureau. “There is truly something fun for everyone and we invite visitors to plan a trip, stay in one of upscale and modern hotels and relax and enjoy the bustling downtown streets of Roswell and Alpharetta during this special season.”
Events featured in the brochure include Santa sightings, Christmas services, ghost tours, tree lightings, historic home tours, open houses, historical event reenactments, candy cane hunts, Christmas crafts for children, caroling, special promotions in stores and galleries and opportunities for charitable donations.
With more than 90 events going on throughout the season, there has never been a better time to pack up the family for a holiday getaway. CVB officials say come and stay in one of 33 hotels offered in Alpharetta and Roswell.
“This special holiday promotion is an opportunity to reach out to audiences across the southeast and beyond to make them aware of all the wonderful experiences they will find in Roswell and Alpharetta,” said Dotty Etris, executive director at Roswell Convention and Visitors Bureau. “With so many activities, combined with our welcoming lodging facilities, it’s also the perfect time for our residents to invite friends and family to visit. The Divine 9 booklet, our aggressive internet marketing program, social media and other venues will help spread the word that a trip to Roswell and Alpharetta should definitely be included in family holiday celebrations.”
