Destination Rebrand

Friday, October 5, 2012 3:27 PM by Andrea Mensink

Getting to the Heart of Our Customers
We surveyed overnight guests and residents to find what makes Pierce County unique from our competitors. The information identified six main themes that visitors and residents alike attribute to Pierce County: friendliness, natural beauty, affordability, convenience, urban and relaxed environment.
Two months ago, we brought these themes to focus groups consisting of community members around the county. We dug deeper and collected more specific information, thoughts and feelings about how these themes relate to Pierce County.

Our team then sat down with the research and pulled out a destination promise, essence and personality. These are statements that will become the groundwork for all future steps of our marketing, organizational, investment and development decisions. They define our key assets and what sets us apart from our regional competitors. They will become the foundation for tourism in Pierce County.

We want to share the destination promise, essence and personality, along with what we want Pierce County to be known for with you. We've constructed something we think everyone in Pierce County will see themselves in.

Come and be apart of a select pulse group to share your initial response and let us know if you can see yourself and your community in the foundation we're laying for the future of our destination messaging.

Join us at one of three pulse groups:
  • Tuesday, Oct. 15 from 3-4 p.m.
    Holiday Inn Express - Lakewood

  • Friday, Oct. 19 from 9-10 a.m.
    Best Western Premier Plaza - Puyallup

  • Monday, Oct. 22 from 9-10 a.m.

What to do this weekend: 1/20 - 1/22

Thursday, January 19, 2017 6:00 PM by Calista Klein

Happy Friday, Pierce County!
 
This time of year one of my favorite things to do is try something new and creative. The cloudy skies make being inside so appealing, but I don't want to just sit around indoors all weekend! Luckily, scattered throughout Pierce County there are plenty of creative enterprises who can help artistically challenged individuals like myself create something to display in my home, drink my morning coffee out of, or even give as a gift to a friend with an upcoming birthday!
