Tourism in the Loup Valley

with 2 comments

The Tourism Advisory Committee is holding their bi-monthly meeting tonight at the Valley County Visitor’s Bureau (5:30p).  Meeting particulars can be downloaded here.

One specific item I’m really excited to talk about is our emerging tourism coalition with Central Nebraska Adventures.  Give them a look here.  We’ll be enhancing our local tourism promotions effort in collaboration with the group and hopefully we can measure the impact of those efforts directly (ie, increased lodging tax receipts, sales tax receipts, etc.).  The Central Nebraska folks are also responsible for the fantastic Sandhill crane website that came on-line in early 2009 (we blogged about it here).  To date, that website has helped drived a *ton* of traffic to our own.

Some of you may be wondering why we spend so much time on these efforts for little ‘ole Ord.  Simply put, tourism coalitions work.  Remember, NPR came to Ord because of a blog post about winetasting in Central Nebraska.  I’m stoked to see where this one goes.  We’ve had a tremendous amount of success with our ESCAPE coalition, and we’ll continue those efforts into the future.  It’s very possible that when we finish the new http://www.ordnebraska.com website, we’ll be tackling a new website for our tourism efforts as well.

Stay tuned!
