  • The way we get information and respond to the environment around us has changed. We are now a culture of sharing. We want others to know where we are and the cool things we’re doing. Your festivals and events can provide that venue. This not only fuels their desire to share, it spreads the message about your events at the same time.

  • It’s always challenging trying to integrate a downtown into a festival experience. This group may have figured out how. The Geneva Chamber of Commerce worked with downtown businesses and the Swedish Days Festival on a promotion that will help market the downtown merchants to festival attendees. Visitors with smartphones will get immediate access to featured specials and discounts exclusively during the event. When you scan the code, you go to the mobile friendly Swedish Days 2011 Hot Deals page that includes all the specials. Some are offering a % off, others are offering BOGOs.
