(Regina, SK) As the world converges on Regina for Grey Cup and Agribition, Economic Development Regina (EDR), and its partners, are aiming the spotlight squarely on the Queen City.
“Regina has a great story to tell about opportunity, growth, and optimism,” said Chris Lane, EDR President and CEO. “More than ever, Regina has an opportunity to take its place on the global stage and, together with our partners, we’re going to do exactly that.”
Together with the Regina Hotel Association, Tourism Regina, Harvard Developments, the Regina Downtown Business Improvement District, and Regina-born FrontRunner Technologies, EDR’s multi-level Place Brand campaign will feature TV ads, targeted online advertising and promoted social media posts, window projection advertisements, a digital art installation, and a new landing page for Regina’s growth story – GrowYourWorldRegina.com.
“When the world is watching, Regina stands up and steps into the spotlight,” Regina Hotel Association CEO Tracy Fahlman said. “We have a well-earned reputation as a world-class host city and we’re proud to show it off.”
Built on Regina’s new “Grow Your World Here” brand initiative, the campaign features three key messages:
- Regina is the heartbeat of the new prairie economy: Already a global powerhouse in ag and food, Regina is a place of opportunity for residents, businesses, and investors to grow and prosper.
