Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau

The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau (PMVB) is a private, non-profit, membership based organization that was established in 1934. They are the official destination marketing organization for the four-county, Pocono Mountains region of Carbon, Monroe, Pike and Wayne. The region is famous for its resorts, natural scenic beauty, 150 lakes including Lake Wallenpaupack, and quaint, historic towns. The organization’s mission is to enhance the economic and environmental well-being of the region and its members through the promotion of tourism and the comprehensive marketing of the Pocono Mountains as a destination.

Chris Barrett, President and CEO of Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau shares his experience working with Milliron Goodman Government Relations over the years.

Legislative Goals

During the unprecedented time of a global pandemic, PMVB and all of its members were flipped upside down by the sudden and complete closure of the travel and tourism industry. Never in the history of the organization have we faced business going to zero, and for a period of time no one could predict. Even now, there are many uncertainties and constantly changing tides with tourism in Pennsylvania. Our most important legislative goals, at least until we see light at the end of the tunnel of the pandemic, is to advocate for safe reopening policies, to equip our members with the latest and best information on travel policies and procedures, and to inform the public about everything we’re doing to keep them safe and healthy while they enjoy the Pocono region.

Outcome & Successes

We leaned heavily on the Milliron Goodman team from the first day Governor Wolf announced the closure of all non-essential businesses in the Commonwealth. With their guidance and leadership, Milliron Goodman advocated for our best interests and were able to see that our concerns, viewpoints, and ideas were heard by our state legislators. Ultimately, Milliron Goodman played an important role in the safe reopening of the travel and tourism industry in the Pocono region, allowing PMVB and our members to again open their doors to the public, with proper health procedures in place.

The Client Experience

Milliron Goodman has been right by the side of the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau during its darkest period in our 75-year existence, a pandemic. Travel and tourism were decimated, and they helped us, to help our hundreds of members to mitigate the negative effects. They were available 24/7 as we navigated uncharted waters every minute. I am grateful for their personal attention and support and it won’t be easily forgotten.
