Open house for tourism partners Wednesday, October 11th

By Erin Knutson

The tourism marketing partnership, Travel Columbia Valley (TCV), will be hosting a free open house for tourism partners and tourism businesses in the Columbia Valley at the Copper Point Resort on Wednesday, October 11th from 1-3 p.m. in the Amber Ballroom. The session will be a unique opportunity for TCV to provide an update on their marketing strategies and activities to help promote tourism in the area.

“It will be an update on what our activities are and what our overall strategy is and the time is now because the campaign ramps up from September and it goes through March, so we’ll have some early results to share,” said TCV project coordinator Nancy Smith of the group’s recent achievements.

This includes a snapshot of web and social analytics that demonstrate the growth of communities through online promotion.

The marketing plan update is scheduled to take place from 1-2 p.m. and Ms. Smith will be facilitating a social media workshop for tourism businesses from 2-3 p.m.

Ms. Smith brings with her a high level of expertise on the subject and will help guests utilize tools to get the best results on social media.

The tourism marketing partnership has been going strong since its inception two years ago and has seen a collaborative spirit here in the Valley, according to Ms. Smith, with businesses and project partners matching TCV dollars to help achieve greater results.

“It was such a good effort and I have to say that I’ve worked with many communities and what impressed me the most was this willingness to cooperate for the greater good of promoting tourism to the Valley,” Ms. Smith told The Pioneer.

For more information or to attend the workshop guests are asked to RSVP at, check out their website at or go to their Travel Columbia Valley Facebook page.
