CHAMPAIGN COUNTY , Ill. (WCIA) — The county is celebrating the success of highlighting tourism in the area. Supporters made a toast to tourism Wednesday.
Visit Champaign County says the county has increased its leisure market after being named the “Greatest Midwest Food Town.”
“What we’ve figured out is venues, such as this One Pear Tree Estate, the types of venues we have can accommodate groups coming in for business travel whether it’s for conferences, whether its group travel coming in for group travel or family reunion,” says Visit Champaign County President Jayne DeLuce.
Since the state has had successful numbers, Champaign County believes it will see the same trend and will release those number in June. Five people and groups were honored at the Toast to Tourism event.
