AUGUSTA - The Maine Office of Tourism awarded seven Tourism Enterprise Marketing Grant awards in the spring 2017 round of the Tourism Enterprise Marketing Grant program.

“Maine’s tourism industry includes so many inviting destinations and activities for visitors to enjoy, year-round throughout the state,” said Steve Lyons, Maine Office of Tourism Acting Director. “These marketing grants are designed to assist places and organizations that need a small boost to get the word out about what they offer, and inspire visitors to explore a range of travel experiences in Maine.”

Tourism Enterprise Marketing Grants awarded in spring 2017 will support tourism marketing projects planned for summer and fall.Recipients are the following:

Maine Pond Hockey- $5,000

Funding supports a digital marketing campaign to reach pond hockey enthusiasts in the Boston/New England market with banner ads, e-blasts and social media.

Bethel Area Chamber - $6,190

Funding supports development of video assets promoting the Bethel Area for use on the chamber website, newsletters and YouTube channel.

Center for Maine Contemporary Art - $10,000

Funding supports a fall radio broadcast campaign in the Boston and New England Market promoting the “Linden Frederick: Night Stories” exhibit.

Maine Professional Guides Association - $10,000

Funding supports printing of a Maine Professional Guides Directory to be distributed through sportsman shows and online inquiries.

Experience Maritime Maine - $10,000

Funding supports a social media campaign posting photos, stories and itineraries related to the maritime experiences of Maine; and development and advertising of podcasts about maritime life to entice visitors to the participating regions.

Washington County Council of Governments - $2,000

Great Cranberry Island Historical Society- $3,000

Funding supports website improvements to meet visitor expectations, and the development of a social media presence to attract more visitors to the island.

Tourism Enterprise Marketing Grants are awarded biannually in spring and fall, with awards ranging from $2,500 to $10,000. Eligible non-profit organizations may also apply for Special Event Marketing Grants.

“Through the Enterprise Marketing Grant program, the Office of Tourism is able to be responsive to smaller organizations and help bring their individual marketing efforts to the next level,” said Phil Savignano, Senior Tourism Officer and grant administrator for the Maine Office of Tourism.

The deadline for applications for the next round of Tourism Enterprise Marketing and Special Event grants will be in early November 2017. More information and grant guidelines can be found at under Maine Tourism Marketing Partnership Program (MTMPP).

    I've been browsing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's
    pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot
    more useful than ever before.
