Northeast Columbia, SC Hotel Gets Involved With Northeast Director of Sales Association

Fairfield Inn & Suites Columbia Northeast Works to Support Community Businesses

COLUMBIA, SC--(Marketwire - Oct 19, 2012) - It takes a village, they say, and joining forces with other local businesses and hotels in Northeast Columbia, SC is something the Fairfield Inn & Suites Columbia Northeast believes strongly in. In an effort to promote the community and draw visitors, Amanda Gasparato, the property's director of sales, has taken an active role with the Northeast Director of Sales Association (NE DOSA) as the membership director.

The organization's mission is to promote the Northeast Columbia area with both residents and visitors. Members promote not only their own businesses but those of fellow members too. While downtown Columbia often gets the spotlight, members of the NE DOSA aim to shine the light on Fort Jackson, SC hotels, restaurants, shops, parks, sports activities and more.

"The Northeast DOSA provides a great environment for members to not only promote our own businesses, but also to help reach out and do good in our local Northeast community," Gasparato says. "It's a win-win situation for everyone involved whether directly or indirectly." 

In addition to attracting Columbia, SC group travel to help build local revenues, members also get involved with local charitable organizations and make regular donations through the NE DOSA's Charity of the Quarter. To learn more about the organization, visit
