Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board Makes It Easier to Find a Seat at the Table

By
Patrons using OpenTable will find it easier to get a seat at Montgomery County restaurants like Morton's Steakhouse.

Montgomery County is home to some of the finest culinary skills in the Mid-Atlantic, with an array of more than 500 county-wide restaurants, and our local menus represent true artistry in the kitchen.

The Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board has launched an initiative to make it easier for patrons to find a seat at the county’s bountiful tables.

The Board’s website, ValleyForge.org, now features integration with OpenTable – the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations.

“There are many reasons to visit Montgomery County,” says VFTCB President and CEO Mike Bowman. “We have the most engaging historic sites, a vivid nightlife, plenty of ways families can engage their little ones, 91 miles of trails, sport possibilities from fishing to skydiving, and first class hotels. But one of our most popular assets is our restaurant scene. Whether Italian, Greek, German, French, Indian, Asian, or good old American, our menus here are magnificent.”

Bowman is a champion of the flexibility OpenTable affords its users.

“This initiative means that visitors can explore our site, map out an incredible itinerary for a long weekend or vacation visit, and then guarantee themselves a truly memorable meal,” he said.

“Adding OpenTable creates a direct link between consumers and our member restaurants,” says Zach Brown, VFTCB Online Marketing and Research Manager. “Now, when a visitor finds a restaurant on our website, he or she can make a dinner reservation in seconds.”

Bowman believes the addition of OpenTable furthers the VFTCB’s ongoing embrace of new technology in the travel-tourism industry. The online booking mechanism augments the organization’s virtual-tour capability that was launched in October 2015. Called Montco360 (and available at Montco360.net), the site features interactive views of Montgomery County sites – including restaurants – that can be explored in all directions with the swipe of a finger.
