Ever notice how often friends and coworker feel more stressed returning from vacation than when they left? Do fuel costs and lost-bag fiascoes take the fun out of traveling? Are there under-utilized attractions and organizations in your community that could use some exposure?
Here’s an idea: Why not target the growing number of households opting to stay local rather than travel to far-off vacation spots! The “staycation” concept (staying close to home for vacation) can be the perfect on-trend spin for chambers of commerce, non-profits, churches, or any community group to promote local summer events and businesses.
Community staycation events can last a weekend, a week, or all summer long and may feature flea markets, live music, run/walk fundraisers, or a even a special passport of little-known attractions right in your city’s backyard (with a prize for the most “stamped” staycationers!). These fun community events are cropping up all over, from Schaumburg, IL, to Montgomery, AL, and even across the pond in Northern Ireland!
Kick off your local staycation event with fanfare using tropical-theme promotional products to increase awareness and excitement. No one could miss a bright Hawaiian-style camp shirt on influential business owners or city administrators. The Tropical Print Camp Shirt does the trick with 8 bold pattern options and your own custom embroidery!
Build hype and spread the word about upcoming staycation events at your local farmers’ market, library, or pool with full-color reusable bags featuring a relaxing beach scene. These breezy beauties come in handy instantly to hold fresh produce, flowers, books and pool gear. Enclose a community calendar, leaflet, or events schedule inside for easy reference!
Bring the feeling of a tropical escape (or any other theme!) with classic, low-cost promotional magnets, pencils, signs, t-shirts and more by adding your own custom graphics in full color! Beachy and bright logo designs will be the talk of the town in no time!
It’s time to discover the hidden gems, local attractions, and new friends right there in your community. And you won’t lose your luggage, GUARANTEED!
