Monmouth County Tourism Receives
“President’s Award” from NJTIA

FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners is proud to announce that Monmouth County Tourism has been honored with the President’s Award from the New Jersey Tourism Industry Association (NJTIA) for the development and launch of the new tourism website in 2020.

“I am thrilled that Monmouth County Tourism has received the President’s Award from the NJTIA for all of the effort that was put into the new Tourism website,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to Monmouth County Tourism. “The pandemic forced tourism to adapt to the changing and increasing demands for user-friendly online access to information and I commend the County Tourism staff for their hard work and dedication to the residents and visitors of Monmouth County.”

The award highlights that in early 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic began, Monmouth County Tourism began rebranding its web presence and created a new website. The transformation of the new website began in 2020 and officially launched in April 2021. By early August, the website had nearly 30,000 users. In addition to the new website, Tourism also commissioned promotional videos that focused on Monmouth County being a year-round tourism destination.

“Monmouth County is a year-round tourism destination with a variety of events, restaurants, shops, and small businesses to visit,” said Commissioner Director Arnone. “I encourage everyone to visit the new Tourism website to see for themselves how user-friendly and easy it is to navigate and visitors can find information about planning their visit to Monmouth County.”

The New Jersey Tourism Association (NJTIA) is a 501-C6 non-profit trade organization. Its members include every aspect of the $38 billion State tourism industry and are a representative body of organizations that promote and serve the individual aspects of that industry.
