1:00 pm Top 10 Tourism Webinar

Melinda HuntleyMelinda Huntley of the Ohio Travel Association shares Top 10 Tourism tips in this webinar.

Ohio travelers spend approximately $30 billion a year. As these dollars flow through the economy, another $8 billion is spent by Ohio’s travel-related businesses as they purchase goods and services.

Want to learn some tips on how your community can get more of these dollars spent in your local businesses? We’ll discuss 10 steps to boost your market share of Ohio’s travelers, from ways to connect to existing partners who can help you promote your unique place to creating experiences that’ll entice visitors. Using research on what travelers are seeking, case studies, and lessons learned after helping communities boost their visitor economies for more than 25 years, Melinda will give you an easy-to-follow checklist and the rationale for why this is important for your business or community.

10:30 am YOP Newark Day

NewarkTour_Flyer

The Young Ohio Preservationists have partnered with the Licking County Foundation and the Midland Theatre to offer exclusive tours in downtown Newark. Participants will enjoy a tour of the Midland Theatre; the Midland Theatre was built in 1928, and operated for 50-years. Following its 1978 closure, the building fell into disrepair until the Longaberger Company purchased the structure in 1992 and began an 8.5-million restoration, which would last 8 years. Following the Midland Theatre tour, participants will stroll around the historic courthouse square in downtown Newark to the Home Building Association Bank. Designed by Louis Sullivan, the bank was constructed in 1914, and operated as such for only a short time. The building operated as a commercial structure, providing a space for a salon and an icecream parlor and other businesses over the years. More recently, the structure was gifted by a very generous donor to the Licking County Foundation who plan to undergo a restoration of the structure. What the Licking County Foundation does not know yet, is how the space should best be utilized now. Following the tour of the bank, participants will engage in a design charrette and explore adaptive-use opportunities for this iconic bank!

This event is free for all, however space is limited so register at the bottom of this page. Donations to the historic sites are encouraged.
