National Travel & Tourism Week is approaching. Let us know your current promotions!

National Travel & Tourism Week is May 1st - 7th this year.

National Travel & Tourism Week is May 1st - 7th this year.

Each May, the U.S. Travel Association celebrates National Travel & Tourism Week as a way of acknowledging how important Travel and Tourism is to the local economy. This year National Travel & Tourism Week runs May 1st - 7th, during which time Corning and the Southern Finger Lakes will offer a printable National Travel & Tourism Week Savings Passport targeted to local residents who are encouraged to visit participating businesses and present a printed version of the pass, or display it on their smartphones, for special offers.

Making locals aware of what there is to do in their own hometown helps create ambassadors of our destination while also developing local pride. We encourage your business to participate in this special promotion to help increase local awareness of the great attractions in Corning and the Southern Finger which make it a world-class destination.

Please send your special offer by Friday, April 8, 2016 to kpeterson@corningfingerlakes.com.

The new look website has arrived!

Welcome to the new hammondsport.org! It's been a long time in the planning stages and we've collected a lot of member feedback before arriving at our new home. We're thrilled with the new platform and we're certain the new site will become a substantially more functional aspect of Chamber membership and Hammondsport area commerce overall.

The site is currently in its "soft launch" phase. Expect many more enhancements and content to be built out in the coming weeks. Right now we have all the essentials: Home page, Businesses directory listings, "Request a free info packet" page, Contact Us, and a few others. The coming weeks should see a focus on adding content pertaining to Tourism and Chamber Programs.

Watch this space, more to come!
