"As an event director, I'm thrilled to be returning to York with the NSRA Street Rod Nationals East. For more than 30 years, we've been hosting our event in York. One could say my enthusiasm comes from the easy access from all parts of the county, or maybe the fact that York has everything to offer our attendees including the York Expo Center, lodging for ever budget, dining for all appetites and lots of things to see and do in and around the community. Possibly it is the opportunity to work with the York County Convention & Visitors Bureau and utilizing their expertise for our participants and guests alike. Then again, maybe it is all of this combined with a feeling like you're ‘going home.'"
Jerry Kennedy, Special Events Director, National Street Rod Association
"The Pennsylvania Council of the Arts (PCA) had a wonderful experience presenting the Governor's Awards for the Arts in York! The beautifully-restored theatres of the Strand-Capitol; the lovely downtown location with its restaurants, shops and the Central Market; the extraordinary collections of the York County Heritage Trust; the historic Yorktowne Hotel; the Murals, the Pullo Center; the incomparable Valencia Ballroom; everyone and every place welcomed and embraced the arts awards, the many attendees and the PCA."
Phillip Horn, Executive Director, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts
"Working with the York Convention and Visitors Bureau has been a very pleasant experience. Our group chose York because it was centrally located to our eastern region and because we were able to get quality accommodations and facilities at reasonable prices. Working with the Bureau made selecting a facility and planning events easy and the Bureau assisted us with on-site registration and welcoming of guests, along with providing helpful information to our guests. I would highly recommend York for those planning regional business conferences and meetings."
