CLEVELAND - For a few hours Wednesday afternoon the Rock Hall became the talk hall, and all the talk was about Cleveland.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and Positively Cleveland partnered to sponsor the 4th Annual Travel and Tourism Industry Day.
Nearly 150 frontline staff from hotels, restaurants and transportation companies were invited to the Rock Hall. That's where they learned about Cleveland's top visitor destinations to best assist tourists and local residents during the 2013 summer travel season.
"Taxi cab drivers, the hotel concierge, the restaurants, the bartenders, the waitresses," said Hannah Belsito from Positively Cleveland, "we want to make sure they know Cleveland and all it has to offer so when a visitor comes to town, so they can educated them on all the things there are to do."
Attendees had a chance to talk with representatives from area attractions such as the Cleveland Aquarium, the Natural History Museum, and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to get the latest information that they could pass along to people they deal with that are visiting the city and looking for things to do.
Attendees were also invited to tour the new Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction exhibit as well as the rest of the Rock Hall free of charge.
