Spring Hill, Tenn. (Oct. 11, 2022)—On July 5, 2022, the Tennessee Department of Tourist Development named the Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce an official destination marketing organization (DMO) for Spring Hill, Tenn.

“We consider it a privilege to be able to meet the tourism needs of our Spring Hill community,” said Becca Melton, executive director of the Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce. “By leveraging our relationships within the local business community, we feel our tourism initiatives will contribute to the success of our local economy.”

To help the chamber make decisions related to the promotion of Spring Hill, the chamber is forming a Tourism Advisory Board with representatives who contribute to the tourism industry in the Spring Hill area. As of today, the following have confirmed their seat.

  • Tara Stouder, Magnolia & Vine Event Venue
  • Melissa Fisher, Fisher’s Off-Road Rentals
  • Curtis Gibbs, Early’s Honey Stand
  • Hannah Moeller, Groove Life
  • Jennifer Gonzalez, Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint

The mission of the Tourism Advisory Board is to support Spring Hill as a visitor destination by providing expertise in the tourism sector so that community assets are properly promoted.

In addition to the DMO designation, the Spring Hill Chamber received funds from the City of Spring Hill in early 2022 to help with the establishment of a Welcome Center in Spring Hill.

The grand opening celebration for the Welcome Center, located at 5326 Main St., Spring Hill, Tenn., will be held on Oct. 31, 2022, with a ribbon cutting scheduled from 12:00 p.m. until 1:00 p.m. Additionally, residents can visit the Welcome Center during a come-and-go open house celebration from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. Candy and apple cider will be served.

In conjunction with the opening of the Welcome Center, the Spring Hill Chamber has partnered with South Central Tennessee Tourism Association to redevelop the Experience Spring Hill website. The website will serve as the digital version of the Welcome Center, providing information for both visitors and potential/new residents. The first phase of the website will launch at the end of October.
