RE: Valdez Gold Rush Centennial
The Bureau is moving forward a number
of Gold Rush Centennial promotions that the City has recently endorsed.
The marketing will encompass a variety of media including television, a
brochure, radio, a poster, and the Internet,
along with publicity efforts. The product to be promoted will include
the Gold Rush historical connections of Valdez along with the Museum, trails,
and town improvements. In addition, the tours and activities
will be covered in a general sense using the theme message of
Visit Valdez and Experience the Alaska Gold
Rush in Valdez.
Our intention is to make this Valdez Gold Rush
product as comprehensive as possible. Gold Rush events such as the
Independence Day celebration, Gold Rush Days, and the Labor Day / Discovery
Day celebration will be part of the
promotion. The Gold Rush activities of gold panning, Gold Rush
route flightseeing tours and evening cruises,
shows, movies and lectures will be incorporated into the message.
Also, the town improvements for the Gold Rush will be part of the product
and include trail developments, banners, an historic mural, and historic
photographs on public display.
Our goal is to make this list of events, exhibits
and activities as comprehensive as possible
to provide the greatest number of reasons to visit Valdez. Your help is
needed to accomplish this task. The broadcast ads, brochure, and poster
are being planned now. If your business
or organization is developing an exhibit, activity, or event
that is Gold Rush related, please let us know immediately
by completing and returning this form
to us. THANKS.....
