Testimonials: What Our Members Are Saying
“The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau has been a valuable resource since purchasing Babbling Brook Cottages just 17 months ago. The exposure to hundreds of thousands of potential customers through the Pocono Mountains website, Pocono Television Network, Facebook and Instagram channels and our ad in the yearly Pocono Mountains Magazine have directly produced over 50,000 visits to our business website in just 17 months. When PMVB social media channels mention Babbling Brook Cottages - the visits to our website triple. I recommend anyone that has a tourism related business, invest time into what PMVB can truly do for you. The PMVB staff is made up of amazing people, who love the Poconos. They want to help your business grow and provide visitors an unforgettable experience that will keep them returning season after season, year after year.”
Lamar Crammer, Owner, Babbling Brook Cottages
“Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau has been a thought leader in addressing community needs. Their leadership team understands the importance of cross industry collaboration and lends its marketing expertise to support non-profit organizations and small businesses. Specifically, they have supported Pocono Mountains United Way's Crisis Response Fund, Hospitality & Restaurant Worker Relief Fund, and the dissemination of COVID-19 vaccine information.”
Michael Tukeva, President/CEO, Pocono Mountains United Way
"Being a member of the PMVB has been extremely valuable to Pocono Whitewater in a number of ways. The PMVB provides us the opportunity to co-op marketing programs, giving us access to campaigns and audiences that we wouldn't be able to reach on our own. In addition, the relationships and network that the PMVB has created through its members and staff have provided valuable conversations and partnerships to help move our business forward."
Sierra Fogal, Owner, Pocono Whitewater Adventures
“The Carbon Chamber & Economic Development Corporation represents just 25% of the PMVB's footprint, yet we always get 100% of their support! Whether we are working directly with the staff to promote a particular event or area of interest, working together to bring more viable tourism businesses to the county, or reaching out for expert advice we know that working with the professional staff at the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau is the right choice to help promote Carbon County!"
Alice Wanamaker, Executive Director, CCEDC
“I have been a member with PMVB for three years and they continue to be a valuable partner to my business. Through my membership I am able to leverage PMVB's expertise in social media and marketing and get high quality branded content that helps my boutique reach a larger audience. They have also helped me make connections with other businesses in my community as well as various media outlets. Being a member absolutely pays off.”
Olivia Santo, Owner, Gather
“The Carbon Chamber and Economic Development Corporation (CCEDC) has enjoyed their partnership with PMVB for many years. With PMVB’s assistance we can help our businesses expand their marketing reach to larger markets in the New York and Philadelphia areas then they would be able to afford on their own.
The CCEDC leverages support from PMVB to assist with additional marketing programs for our county supporting smaller organizations that may have been overlooked in the past. These smaller groups are just as important to a vibrant tourism economy as the larger companies, and they need the assistance of a larger organization to help them thrive and grow.
We would not have been able to weather the COVID 19 storm without the partnership. Their development of the Pocono Promise program to showcase businesses that were going above and beyond with sanitizing processes to keep customers safe helped give some semblance of protection and comfort when visiting those businesses. We value our PMVB partnership and look forward to its continuation for years to come.”
Kathy Henderson, Director Economic Development, CCEDC
