It’s that time of year!
The state’s annual Fan-Favorite: Town program will be launching next month – and now is the time to plan how you will mobilize people to vote for you to win the coveted accolade of still revolutionary Fan-favorite town, and destination, of the year!
Starting June 12, we’ll ask residents and visitors to vote on the Visit Connecticut Facebook page (via designated tab).
We encourage you to take advantage of this program to promote your town and/or business destination or attraction. Last year, our friends in Niantic won big by mobilizing more than 30 destinations in their town to participate in a fun promotional video. Organize with other destinations, post to social media, share the voting link at point of sale, post flyers to excite the community and more – the sky is the limit on your creativity!
Fan-Favorite Town seeks to shine a spotlight on the state’s unique towns and experiences. The socially-driven program calls for people to vote for the Connecticut town that they think most embodies the spirit of the state’s brand, still revolutionary — a haven for original ideas and innovation that offers a dynamic blend of experiences. Participants will also have the opportunity to vote for their favorite business, destination or attraction within that town. By voting they will automatically be entered to win a Connecticut getaway.
The winning town and destination will receive:
• still revolutionary town of the year award and bragging rights for the year
• PR support and promotion to raise awareness for your town and place
• Advertising support from the Office of Tourism
• Honorary plaque presented by the Office of Tourism
• Editorial feature in the 2015 Connecticut Visitor’s Guide
• Week-long social media takeover across Visit Connecticut’s social channels
