The group, informally calling themselves the “U.S. Route 68 Corridor,” consisted of various officials representing tourism offices and attractions from Bellefontaine to Xenia.

Spearheading the meeting at the Holland Theatre was Stuart Secttor, executive director of Clark State’s Performing Arts Center.

While several Clark County agencies already have come together to better promote their events, Mr. Secttor said he would like to see a regional partnership develop.

“If we are serious about the U.S. 68 corridor, we need to support each along that corridor,” he said. “This is the only way we are going to expand the market.”
