Local visitors bureau moves into new office

Citing the need for additional room for their respective organizations to grow, the local Visitors Bureau has separated from the local Chamber of Commerce umbrella. Earlier this month, the Grand Haven Area Convention & Visitors Bureau relocated its office three blocks east - after 25 years under the same roof of the Chamber of Commerce at 1 S. Harbor Ave.

“Both organizations have been limited for space as we continued to expand our services,” said Joy Gaasch, president of the Chamber of Commerce Grand Haven-Spring Lake-Ferrysburg. “We were all bumping into each other. The opportunity presented itself for the Visitors Bureau to locate at 225 Franklin (Ave.), leaving us with the needed physical space to grow.

Despite the separation, Grand Haven Area Convention & Visitors Bureau Executive Director Marci Cisneros said the partnership and collaboration between the two organizations is key to the future success of the communities they serve.

“We are all very excited about the next 12 months as we implement our new destination brand marketing initiative, the development of our three- to five-year strategic plan, as well as celebrating our 25-year anniversary,” Cisneros said.
