GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – City leaders are working to bring more tourists to Greenville by training residents to be ambassadors.
It’s part of the Greenville Tourism Ambassador Program.
On Thursday, participants did a walking tour of attractions in Uptown Greenville.
The 3-week program teaches community members and employees who deal with tourists about what Greenville and Pitt County have to offer.
Greenville-Pitt County Convention and Visitors Bureau Director Andrew Schmidt says the goal is for participants to help market various attractions in our area.
“It’s really an ability for those people to convey information to individuals that come and maybe approach a front desk at a hotel and say ‘Hey, you know what can I do with my family or what can I do to spend an afternoon here?’,” Schmidt said.
The program wraps up in early-May. To find out how you can get on board for the rest of the program, contact the Visitors Bureau.
