Carlisle Events partnership streamlines hotel booking
A new partnership between Carlisle Events and the Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau will allow those attending the car shows to book lodging more easily.
CVVB officials say the system will have trickle-down economic benefits for area businesses.
"As Cumberland Valley continues to grow as a destination it is more important than ever that we partner with our major attractions, such as Carlisle Events, to provide easy planning and booking tools for our visitors," said Valerie Copenhaver, CVVB director of marketing.
In September, Carlisle Events and CVVB formed a partnership to develop a co-branded lodging reservations system. The exclusive booking page is now available and offers visitors online booking options for Carlisle Events' preferred lodging properties, CVVB announced in a news release.
Car show attendees can choose properties within their desired location and budget that include special amenities like car-washing stations and secure parking.
This year's car show season kicks off with the Spring Carlisle show April 23-27.
The CVVB will be Carlisle Events' exclusive booking/lodging agent. The bureau's booking technology launched in conjunction with its new website in 2012 and provides travelers with one-stop booking and travel options.
"Having been involved with the CVVB since its inception, I have seen it evolve into a first-class destination for everyone to go if they are planning a trip to anywhere near or within the Cumberland Valley," said Bill Miller, co-owner and founder of Carlisle Events.
"Carlisle Events is proud to be associated with the CVVB and know that everyone coming to our events will receive top notch service when working with the CVVB," Miller added in a statement.
The lodging page also encourages car enthusiasts to discover historical, cultural, educational and recreational trip ideas at VisitCumberlandValley.com. After completing their bookings, visitors can find nearby restaurants, bars, events and other things to see and do during their stay.
