Innovation is extremely important in the tourism field. With social media becoming the dominant marketing method, innovation is especially highly regarded and can help your business or innovation to “go viral” or at least to gain recognition for its ability to enhance consumer engagement, which in turn creates brand loyalty.
Do you know of a Calaveras tourism-related business that has implemented new systems or techniques to attract guests? How about your business? What’s really resonating with your customers? Take a look at last year’s blog on our Annual Dinner to get a feel for the event, and for the kinds of businesses that were recognized as top innovators last year.
We are pretty sure we have a good pulse on all of the tourism innovation going on in Calaveras, but in case there’s something we’ve missed, we want to hear from you! Nominees do not need to be members of the Calaveras Visitors Bureau, but they do need to show innovation.
Please use the form below to nominate a business for up to five categories. You are welcome to name your business. You must include a description of innovation(s) to be considered for the ballot. We will create the ballot based on the top nominations submitted by our members and the CVB’s experience with the business community. This poll closes on October 11th at 5:00 pm after which no new nominations will be accepted.
