Lexington To Offer Hospitality Classes In Advance Of Equine Games

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP)- The worst thing Mary Quinn Ramer can hear from a Lexington resident is that there's nothing to do.

So the vice president of marketing at the Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau is helping organize short courses to teach people about the area in advance of the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. The games are expected to draw more than 500,000 visitors to the area.

The classes begin in February and will focus on the history of the area and on regional attractions such as horse farms, bourbon distilleries, festivals, historic sites and museums.

Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau Director David Lord says the goal in offering the class is to make sure locals can pass along what is special about the area.
