The Tourism Office is responsible for marketing, advertising, media relations, and for developing travel and tourism in the Kent County region of Maryland's Eastern Shore.

The Tourism Office strives to safeguard the balance between nature and commerce. It not only facilitates diversification of the County's economy through tourism, but also supports the County's coveted way of life, unique heritage and unmatched natural and cultural resources.

As the marketing arm of Kent County, the Tourism Office manages an extensive marketing schedule, which includes print, electronic and web-based advertising, web site, print collateral, social media and fulfillment.

The Tourism Office facilitates visitor analysis and statistical data to ensure the most effective targeted marketing plan, which is reviewed yearly.

The Director works closely with the Kent County Tourism Advisory Board and the State Office of Tourism Development in the creation, development and implementation of communication strategies.
