Calitri reports: Owensboro bidding for GeoWoodstock 2021
Owensboro’s tourism industry — hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues, gas stations and retail — is reeling from the coronavirus pandemic.
Millions of dollars worth of business has been lost this spring.
But the Owensboro-Daviess County Convention & Visitors Bureau is hoping to land a major event for Memorial Day weekend in 2021 that would pump an estimated $800,000 back into the community in a single week.
The CVB is bidding to host GeoWoodstock XIX, the world’s largest geocaching festival.
It expects to learn in August if the bid is successful.
Margaret Bedilion is director of sales at Stay, Play, Made Simple, a West Chester, Ohio, company that provides housing for tournaments and major events.
She will handle housing in Owensboro if the city wins the bid.
