Visitors Center Update

October 11th, 2012

During her quarterly report to the Berkeley County Council, director Andrea Ball of the Martinsburg-Berkeley County Convention and Visitors Bureau reported that over 8,000 people from 20 states and five countries purchased on-line tickets for this year’s annual Pickin’ in the Panhandle concert.

The weekend event held in September brought in an estimated $5,000,000.00 to the local economy in terms of  money spent in local hotels, restaurants and shops.

Ball also reported that the local visitors center was recertified by the state of West Virginia. Fewer than 40 percent of all the visitors centers are certified by the state.
