COLUMBUS, OH (Nov. 6, 2013) - Since officially launching the Greater Columbus Tourism Ambassador Program in January 2013, Experience Columbus and the Greater Columbus Sports Commission have successfully trained and certified more than 1,000 Certified Tourism Ambassadors (CTAs) in only 11 months, making Columbus the fastest destination out of 18 nationwide to reach the milestone.

In a surprise reception held at Experience Columbus' offices on Nov. 6, 2013, Greater Columbus Arts Council President and CEO Tom Katzenmeyer was recognized as the 1,000th CTA. Tom successfully completed his certification in a class offered on October 29 becoming the 1,000th resident to earn the certification since January.

"This is an excellent program for the city of Columbus," said Katzenmeyer. "The training was fun, informative and engaging. Our entire staff participated and we all came away knowing our city much better. We're grateful to Experience Columbus and the Greater Columbus Sports Commission for their exceptional efforts to make tourists and residents alike feel welcomed."
