Newark, NJ--The first edition of the Greater Newark Visitor Information Guide to promote the Newark region to local, domestic and international visitors to the City of Newark and Essex County attractions is set to be published later this year.

The project is a collaboration of the Greater Newark Convention and Visitors Bureau (GNCVB) and a Maplewood-based publishing company.

The guide, which will be released later this year with an initial run of 500,000 copies, will be available in print and digital format and will feature key information on attractions, restaurants, hotels and signature events in the city.

“We are thrilled to be working with publisher and CEO Victor Nichols and DMC Publishing,” President and CEO of Greater Newark CVB Karin Aaron said. “Victor and his team have a clear understanding of what makes Greater Newark and its environs a unique destination, and the importance of tourism to our local economy.”

Nichols, a 1986 graduate of Rutgers University-Newark, is also the publisher of Newark Bound-- a destination magazine that aims to attract tourists and visitors to Newark.

“The opportunity to work with the GNCVB on its Visitor’s Guide is a natural fit for us,” Nichols said. “It gives us both the opportunity to showcase the City of Newark and all the exciting development and initiatives that are transforming the community into a cutting edge twenty-first century metropolis.”

Established in 2008, the Greater Newark Convention and Visitor Bureau is a private, nonprofit corporation composed of tourism professionals and key industry leaders and is supported in part by a grant from the New Jersey Department of State, Division of Travel & Tourism.
