Saratoga Springs - As we begin to approach the warmer weather, and the promise of spring, we begin to feel hopeful.  Spring is a season of renewal that comes with earlier daylight, and later darkness, which at times seemed impenetrable.  Our positive cases are going down, and vaccines are being delivered into arms across the world.

What are we doing:

While the vaccine is an essential prerequisite for getting group business back to Saratoga County, particularly with tourism and hospitality, working together as a community is going to be vital. We need to promote our destinations as well as our safety standards. Our team at Discover Saratoga is up to speed on the NYS event guidelines, and we are prepared to answer any questions that come up.  

The good news is, in a trend survey created by Meetings Today, 69.81% of respondents said they are generally confident in hotel/facility/destination Covid-19 protocol/safety efforts.  This is a good sign as we are seeing a renewed interest in meetings and events for the second half of the year.  Plus, as vaccination roll-outs continue, confidence in travel will only grow.
