As one of the sixteen Massachusetts Regional Tourism Councils, part of our mission is to serve the hospitality industry and attract visitors to our area. We work collaboratively with other bureaus, particularly those in Western Massachusetts, to strengthen and brand the image of the Pioneer Valley, which has so much to offer. Throughout the year we plan events and activities to gain the attention of niche markets, newcomers and visitors. Our major events are the Better Living Show and Green Fair in the spring and CiderDays, held on the first weekend in November. It is amazing to learn how many international travelers attend these events. And, of course, we welcome local residents and visitors from throughout the USA as well.
