Visit Posey County: Chamber Member of the Month January 2018

 

 

Learn how Visit Posey County, along with Executive Director, Kari Mobley, plan to increase awareness, attract visitors and new business to Posey County and Southwest Indiana.

Who started the business and why?

In September 2016, the not-for-profit corporation Visit Posey County, Inc. was formed to increase the number of visitors to Posey County each year by promoting programs and services to attract tourists, visitors, corporate events, and group tours.

What are the services you provide? 

The mission of Visit Posey County, Inc. is to consistently grow the county’s reputation as an overnight and vacation destination. Accomplishing this mission will lead to new resident attraction that will boost the county population and stimulate new businesses that will provide new jobs and careers for county residents.

What is your favorite thing about the business?

Posey County has an abundance of activities, unique places to stay and local businesses. Being able to help bring attention to the great assets this county has to offer is exciting and motivating.

How does your business differentiate itself from the competition? 

Visit Posey County is different being it has no competition locally. We are our own entity here to help the county. We also collaborate with other CVB’s to promote one another and share ideas that will benefit each community.

What do most members of the community not know about your business? 
Visit Posey County, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation funded through an Innkeepers Tax enacted in 2014. Visit Posey County, Inc. strives to bring regional attention to the abundance of opportunities for outdoor recreation, family adventure, and immersion in remarkable culture and history to Southwest Indiana.

The benefits of these promotional activities will ultimately be felt county-wide as tourism produces new businesses, new jobs, and new residents

Anything else you would like included about your business? 
In the beginning of 2018, Visit Posey County will launch a new marketing campaign. The campaign will consist of a new slogan “We Love Going There” and will be accompanied by the first Posey County Visitors Guide. VPC has an office at the Athenium in New Harmony and shares an office with Posey County Economic Development and the Posey County Alliance in Mt. Vernon.
