Heritage Tourism expert Cheryl Hargrove, president/owner of HTC Partners, led two interactive workshops on heritage tourism trends in conjunction with the 250th historic site assessment project. During the sessions, held in Hammonton and Morristown, Hargrove shared findings on the demographics, needs and interests of heritage travelers, as well as ways historic sites can attract these potential guests and encourage repeat visits.
Clarke Caton Hintz principal John Hatch joined Hargrove in sharing more information on the site assessment process being conducted by the CCH/Hunter Associates/Hargrove team.
