Today, the Greater Wilmington Convention & Visitors Bureau (GWCVB) announced the completion and launch of a new tourism video highlighting the area’s attractions, natural beauty, festivals, activities and more. This comes as tourism in New Castle County grew by 5.2% from 2014 to 2015 and tourism spending reached $2.06 billion, its highest since pre-2008, based on a recent Delaware Tourism Office report.

For this project the GWCVB partnered with Wilmington video production company, The Kitchen, to develop a video that puts the area’s rich history, colorful gardens and diverse culture center-stage while highlighting Odessa to the Brandywine Valley in striking footage that includes Hagley Museum, Nemours Estate, the Delaware History Museum and Center for African American Heritage, DuPont Clifford Brown Jazz Festival, Wilmington & Western Railroad, Historic New Castle, Newark’s Main Street, Fort Delaware and so much more.
