Goals & Benefits
Our mission is to create a thriving tourism economy and enhance the quality of life in York County for the benefit of citizens and visitors.
Partners In Tourism (PIT) is a group of area hotels, restaurants, shops, attractions and service-oriented businesses whose primary objective is promoting York County as a tourist destination. Through membership you will be able to expand your marketing efforts, advertise your business or event, provide visitors easy access to your business information, as well as gain valuable online exposure through the CVB website. Members work hard to cooperatively market all of York County to the convention, meeting, group tour, and sports markets.
An exclusive membership roster is sent to all meeting planners upon request. They may contact your business concerning facilities and services.
Visitor Industry Reports
The Bureau provides access to industry publications and also produces a monthly occupancy report for participating accommodations, upon request. Statistics on visitor inquiries which can be used for planning and marketing purposes are also available to partners upon request.
Open Monday - Friday from 8:30am - 5pm and Saturdays from 9am - 2pm, staff responds to phone, email and mail inquiries about York County accommodations, restaurants, attractions, special events and services.
As a value-added benefit, your business website link will be added to our website. From our site, browsers can request visitor information via e-mail. Specific inquiries should be directed to individual staff e-mail addresses listed on the website.
