Cobb County, Ga. — (April 28, 2020) — As the hospitality and tourism industry continues to feel the impacts of COVID-19, Cobb Travel & Tourism has launched two new initiatives to highlight the arts & culture community and support Cobb County restaurants.
“Cobb Travel & Tourism continues to work to support the hospitality and tourism community during this unprecedented time,” said Holly Quinlan, President & CEO of Cobb Travel & Tourism. “Tourism is such a driving force in our community, and our team is working every day to develop innovative ideas that help shine a light on the great assets in our county.”
A new digital video series, Friday VIBEs uses IGTV to highlight various members of the arts and culture community in Cobb County. The series premiered earlier in April, and features have included a performance and choreography from the Atlanta Lyric Theatre and home gardening tips from Smith-Gilbert Gardens. New features are uploaded Fridays on Cobb Travel & Tourism’s Instagram page and will continue to feature venues and organizations from around the county.
