PCEDC - Tourism opportunity

August 08, 2006 - TRC

Recently I spoke with Charlene Williams of Nancy Marshall Communications. This public relations firm represents both the Maine Office of Business Development and the Maine Office of Tourism.

Charlene deals with all of the travel writers who contact the state wanting tours. She plans to come to Piscataquis county this fall and take the same tour given to the travel writers in June. She will then be able to incorporate that information in working with all of the writers who contact her office. Hopefully, all of the great things going on in our region will get more coverage.

Charlene asked me to let folks know that she is also interested in having tourism related businesses list their contact information on the Office of Tourism website, www.visitmaine.com, and in having any local events that might be of interest to visitors/writers posted on the website. Last but not least, she is interested in any innovative projects in our area that might make good fodder for publicity that her firm can generate on behalf of their many Maine clients.

This is a wonderful avenue for promoting our region, and I hope you will be able to take advantage of it !
