The Holland Area Convention & Visitors Bureau is excited to present the 2017 Holland Area Visitors Guide.  “Due to increased demand, 140,000 copies of the glossy 4-color guide were printed, with the number of pages increasing from 76 to 100,” said Sally Laukitis, Executive Director of the Visitors Bureau. “The early publish date is intentional, showcasing Holland as  year-round destination and giving those who wish to visit during Tulip Time a jump-start on their planning.”

This year’s Guide has even more photos and enticing verbiage than past publications.  The cover photo was taken by Katie Tokarczyk, Auburn Hills, MI, winner of this year’s ‘cover photo contest’.  The rest of the photos were taken exclusively by Holland area photographers. 

With increased competition for visitors along the lakeshore, the Holland Area Visitors Bureau is dedicated to making this Guide the best possible source of information for visitors, meeting attendees, Hope College parents – everyone who comes to the greater Holland area. The 2017 Guide is the main fulfillment piece for the Visitors Bureau, which handles close to 30,000 individual requests for information directly through their office, and consistently ranks near the top in lead requests from Pure Michigan’s website. Additionally, close to 30,000 Guides are distributed to the Michigan Welcome Centers. The Guide is also used at trade shows, in Group Tour Planners, Meeting Planners, Wedding and Event Planners, and Relocation Packets; it is available at area hotels and bed & breakfasts, throughout Downtown Holland, at area attractions, and at select Chamber of Commerce and AAA offices in Michigan and throughout the Midwest. It is also the main fulfillment piece for all advertising placed by the Visitors Bureau.  Given the competition for vacation, sporting, and meeting destinations, the Holland Visitors Bureau goal is to make this the most inclusive, eye-catching visitor guide in Michigan!
