Is tourism marketing a large part of the equation?
Probably the largest. Tens of thousands of dollars are contributed by the business tax base to fund one of the largest town promotional efforts in the area. Painstaking detail is taken in identifying strong market sectors and developing targeted campaigns that bring in thousands of visitors and new residents each year. You’ll find major outdoor events like May Fair, the Fine Arts and Crafts Festival and the Collingswood Holiday Parade as well as a variety of destination marketing programs like Second Saturdays, Cruise Night, Restaurant Weeks, holiday shopping promotions and more.
General meetings are held quarterly and are open to all Collingswood businesses and commercial property owners. Contact Collingswood Partners for dates and locations.
