Through collaborative leadership we supplied a pipeline of $812 million in new capital investment projects to strengthen and diversify the assets in Iowa. But beyond big number private-sector prospects we also work with the progressive small businesses, nonprofits, civic leaders, workforce, education institutions, utilities, transportation, housing, etc to maximize productivity and long-term prosperity in our evolving economic landscape.

Convention and Visitors Bureau Update: New project launches to feature 300+ fun things to do in Tama County

Its official. When a panel of twelve independent statewide leaders and the State Governor single your county out as an authentic and unique cultural asset of Iowa, your greatness is not a subjective opinion anymore.  But with this great honor of being named an Iowa Great Place, comes great responsibility: We need to market and enjoy our Great Place and share what makes it fun with visitors and friends.

To this end, the Tama County Convention and Visitors Bureau is making it cheap and easy to showcase our 300+ points of interest. This group of industry leaders has been working hard on identifying what industry standards could realistically be attained based on regional resources, and have been fund-raising and grant writing to bring the cost of advertising down to only $75 to be featured in the Tama County Travel Pocket Guide 2011-2012. An additional $25 also gets an attraction set up with an online billboard ad for 2 years. Non-tourist attractions can be included in this publication by demonstrating their commitment to quality of life initiatives as the sponsor of a nonprofit attraction of their choice.

At the August 2010 Tama County Convention and Visitors Bureau meeting at the new Fox Ridge Winery, the leadership group finalized the details for the groups bi-annual central communication piece offering. They also discussed progress and best strategies for: 1) Murder Mystery Dinner plans, 2) Point of Sales displays campaign, 3) Travel Iowa Market Place, and 4) Launching a multimedia showcase of Tama County’s fun side.
