Calitri assumes new post at visitors and Convention Bureau
By Art Hunter Editor The Clermont Convention and Visitors Bureau is emerging from a period of transition with a more focused mission and a new executive director. Chris Smith has served as interim executive director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau since September of 2012. He said that he was appointed to help redirect the bureau.
“The intent was to reposition, restructure, reorganize the Convention and Visitors Bureau,” Smith said.
Part of that process, which began more than a year ago, involved the appointing of a new board of directors, assembling a sales team, and establishing good business practices, according to Smith.
Several weeks ago, a new executive director, Mark Calitri, took over at the bureau.
