CVB President Speaks Tourism

The official State of Kentucky visitor guides are now available and offers the most reliable source for information on planning your travels to Kentucky.

“Visit Owensboro’s ad is prominently displayed in this year’s guide and highlights Owensboro as the cultural and culinary hub of Western Kentucky, “said Mark A. Calitri, president/CEO of the Owensboro Daviess County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Mark Calitri praised Dave Kirk, who serves in the role of destination management. “Dave has put his full energy into creating an advertisement that is very appealing to potential visitors. His advertisement captures the essence of Owensboro Kentucky, which is known for bluegrass music, bourbon, and barbeque,” said Calitri.  He added that Owensboro has a culinary scene that is hard to beat.

Calitri said the purpose of the advertisement was to attract potential visitors to the Visit Owensboro CVB official website. From there guests will find the most reliable source for information on things to do, places to stay, and awesome restaurants.
