KANSAS CITY SLOGAN DOUBLE TAKE TONIGHT: THE NEW MIDWEST!?!?!
More important than that the low-rent political debate tonight. This evening we consider the latest marketing push from the crew at Visit KC.
TV news tells us that response has been pretty good.
But we want our blog community to have our own private screening . . .
First a glimpse at the camping kick-off . . .
"Welcome to the heart of the New Midwest. Yes, the New Midwest—it represents a fresh spirit, a reimagination of the region at its finest. And it all starts right here in Kansas City. The epicenter of a new energy, the crossroads of a creative revolution in food, art and business. A home to new people and new ideas—lots of new ideas. We’re staking our claim with a bigger, brighter idea of everything it means to be the Midwest. It’s time the center of the country became the center of attention. Consider this your invitation to join us in the heart of it all."
Food for thought about local life . . .
"It's farm to table, because the farms are closer to the tables. Welcome to Kansas City, heart of the New Midwest."
And then a tribute to the creative class . . .
Finally . . . A look at MOMENTUM:
And so we ask . . .
WILL THE "NEW MIDWEST" LURE MORE PEOPLE TO KANSAS CITY?!? I THOUGHT WE WERE ALREADY DOING GOOD WITH 25-MILLION VISITORS ANNUALLY?!?!?
Think about the seemingly desperate marking push given that local politicos tout big visitor numbers already.
You decide . . .
