News from Economic Development, Planning and Tourism, Posted on Fri, 02/04/2011 - 3:31pm

Cattaraugus County Department of Economic Development, Planning & Tourism announces the new Visitor’s Activities Guide is now available for distribution. This exciting new guide highlights the multitude of activities and attractions our county offers all year-round while spotlighting our assets and the unique experiences that await visitors.

Preparations for the guide were done in-house by the staff of the Department of Economic Development, Planning and Tourism. It was then sent to Anne Conroy-Baiter of Green Pear Press, for design and prepress preparations. Anne’s design is new and fresh with a contemporary look that highlights the many activities visitors and residents can find to do here in the Enchanted Mountains of Cattaraugus County.

According to Roger Brooks of Destination Development, Inc., “Always promote the experience (the activity) and THEN the approximate location; visitors are looking for things to do and learn.” With this insight in mind, the guide was developed to showcase experiences that one can participate in or watch while in Cattaraugus County.

The guide was printed by Kenyon Press, Inc., Sherburne, NY. Paul DeMarco, Sales Director at Kenyon, stated “I love the way it looks. The usage of larger photos and stylish type fonts gives the guide a sense of elegance. It reads more like a travel magazine than your standard mishmash of pictures and ads.”

Stapled inside the guide is our extensive county map that was created in-house.
