11/08/2018- Big things are in the works for Marinette County, according to county’s Marketing and Tourism Director. Melissa Ebsch gave an update to the Development Committee Tuesday on the tourism and marketing activities planned through 2019. She says in addition to creating new merchandise promoting Marinette County, she’s also working to replace outdated material like professional images of the county which haven’t been updated since the early 2000s. Ebsch says she’s made it a priority to ensure all of Marinette County’s communities are included in her efforts and part of that involves performing individual destination assessments.
Ebsch is also working on a new branding campaign featuring video productions from throughout the county as well as continuing the effort to promote the area as a world-class fishing destination. Marinette County’s contract with the City of Marinette for tourism and marketing services expires at the end of January, though County Administrator John Lefebvre has indicated he may consider renewing that agreement.
