Last Chance to Register for Agri/Eco-Tourism Workshop

 

Time is running out to sign up for the Nebraska Tourism Commission’s annual Agri/Eco-Tourism Workshop on February 3-5 at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Convention Center in Kearney. Farmers, ranchers, outfitters, vineyard operators, u-pick operators, managers of eco-tourism attractions, chamber/tourism staff and more will learn how to get the most out of their land, utilize fresh marketing ideas, discover greater financial opportunities and network with potential partners.

“While agritourism may be new to some, it has been practiced by Nebraskans who, for generations, have served up agricultural products and services with warm hospitality and down to earth charm. Today’s growing interest in agritourism offers new and additional opportunities for landowners and rural communities. It allows visitors to experience agriculture first-hand and to be a part of nature, away from the pressures of city life,” said Kathy McKillip, Director of the Nebraska Tourism Commission.

To educate current and prospective agri/eco-tourism businesses, Swanson Russell and Associates and Geiger & Associates PR, Inc., have teamed up to teach low cost and no cost ways to increase the presence of a business in the tourism marketplace. The two firms will cover everything from brand discovery to realistic marketing goals.

In addition to the low cost and no cost marketing seminar, the Keynote Speaker, Carol Patterson will be sharing her strategies about how you can reinvent your tourism organization and rediscover your passion. Carol Patterson has helped emerging tourism destinations for over two decades. Her work in product development provides innovative new travel products, some of which have increased revenues 25 percent in one season. Carol's travel writing is regularly featured in the Red Deer Advocate and she is the author of several books including “The Business of Ecotourism.”

To get more information about the 2014 Agri/Eco-Tourism Workshop or to register for the event, go to http://www.visitnebraska.com/industry. If you have any questions about the workshop or would like information on sponsorships, call Karen Kollars at 308-249-3220.

Nebraska Tourism and Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium® 

Name Penguin Chick after Bronco’s Peyton Manning

 

With the Bronco’s recent success and the buzz about Peyton Manning’s frequent use of the word Omaha, Nebraska Tourism wanted to do something to thank Mr. Manning for all of the shout-outs. After much thought about what would be an appropriate way to thank Peyton, Nebraska Tourism reached out to one of our partners to name something very special after the amazing quarterback. What is it?

It’s not a bridge, or a building, or a stadium, a forest or a museum….

It’s a cute little penguin chick that hatched on December 27, 2013 and currently weighs 1.26 pounds at the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. Zoo Director Dennis Pate commented,  “When Nebraska Tourism reached out to us about this idea, we thought it would be a really “cool” way to say thanks to Mr. Manning for using the word Omaha in his pre-snap chants. We hope that Mr. Manning and his family will consider coming to Nebraska to say hi to his namesake sometime in the near future.”

“I think the whole world knows how much Nebraskan’s love football, so it’s fun to hear such a great quarterback chanting out our largest city’s name hundreds of times per game. We get a kick out of it and are happy for Peyton and his team. We wish them continued success in all that they do,” commented Nebraska Tourism’s Executive Director, Kathy McKillip.
