The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau has announced the appointment of Kimberly Hartley as the Director of Canada for the Myrtle Beach area.
With more than 20 years of experience in the Canadian travel industry, Hartley has developed strong relationships with travel agents, tour operators, wholesalers, meeting and incentive planners, airlines and both trade and consumer media. Her goal will be to help raise awareness of the Myrtle Beach area and increase visitation and economic growth from Canada.
'I am extremely excited about bringing the destination to the forefront for the trade, the consumer and the media. With the new service provided by Porter Airlines from Feb-May 2010, there is more reason to choose the Myrtle Beach area and discover what the destination has to offer. Canadians may think they know the Myrtle Beach area, but they may want to reconsider – it has changed dramatically over the last few years.”
