Amelia Ritter, digital marketing and content manager of the Livingston County Convention & Visitors Bureau, has been named one of Destinations International’s 2020 30-Under-30 recipients.

In under two years at the organization, Ritter helped launch a new website and implement a social media content strategy, more than doubling web traffic and online engagement.

“We are extremely proud of Amelia for being named in this prestigious group of young professionals. Amelia is talented, creative and absolutely dedicated to marketing Livingston County as a destination at the highest level,” said Mary Robinson, executive director of Livingston County Convention & Visitors Bureau.

The 30 individuals, 30 years of age and under, will have the opportunity to engage in professional development opportunities throughout 2020 and beyond. The honorees originate from a variety of destination organizations of all sizes and countries.

“The 30 Under 30 program remains critical to our organization’s vision and mission,” said Don Welsh, president and CEO of Destinations International. “Especially in these uncertain times, we are especially excited to announce these young professionals as they are the future of the travel and tourism industry.”

The program will focus on year-round professional development, including regular interactive webinars and an online community to share ideas.

“In these times, more than ever, it’s important to support and build the next generation of leaders and Amelia embodies that spirit in her work with the bureau,” said Pam McConeghy, chair of Livingston County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
