Globetrotters to return to Wildwoods Convention Center in summer 2012
(PHOENIX, April 16, 2012) - The Harlem Globetrotters' partnership with the Greater Wildwoods Tourism Improvement and Development Authority (GWTIDA) received a 2012 New Jersey Excellence in Tourism Award at this year’s New Jersey Conference on Tourism.
The Globetrotters partnered with GWTIDA to host four games at the Wildwoods Convention Center in August of 2011 – the team’s only summer appearance in North America. The success of the games exceeded all expectations and generated a tremendous amount of attention for both the Wildwoods and the Globetrotters.
The Globetrotters will return to the Wildwoods in 2012 for another four-day run at the Wildwoods Convention Center from Wednesday, August 8 through Saturday, August 11.
"The exciting and amazing partnership with the Harlem Globetrotters organization brought a new level of fun to the Wildwoods during our summer tourist season," said John Siciliano, Executive Director for GWTIDA.
The Excellence in Tourism Awards Ceremony serves to honor the individuals and organizations that have contributed to the experience of visitors and the quality of life of New Jersey residents.
