Chamber Celebrates Economic Development Week by Recognizing Businesses

Posted by: Justin Freeman on Monday, June 1, 2020

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson proclaimed the first week of May as Economic Development Week in Arkansas. The week also coincided with National Travel and Tourism Week. Chambers, cities, and travel and tourism professionals across the state united to celebrate the value that tourism and a strong economy bring for our businesses and personal wellbeing. The Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce and Visit Rogers mission work (economic development and destination marketing) goes hand-in-hand to establish a vibrant, thriving community.

As part of celebrating Economic Development Week, the Chamber reached out to members and highlighted those who wanted to participate in a social media campaign recognizing the impact their businesses have on our region’s history and economy. Many of these posts were also shared on social media by Visit Rogers to promote the strong tourism destination that our community has become.

In total, the social media campaign’s posts accumulated more than 70,000 people reached and amassed more than 60,000 impressions with nearly 10,000 engagements.
