Martin County Office of Tourism launches #MartinTogether campaign
The Martin County Office of Tourism and Marketing recently launched the #MartinTogether campaign to help support local businesses, bolster consumer confidence and raise awareness about traveling safely amid COVID-19.
“Tourism is a vital component of the Martin County economy and can be a catalyst to help with our economic recovery,” said Nerissa Okiye, Director of the Martin County Office of Tourism and Marketing.
A dedicated website, www.martintogether.com, serves as the hub for the effort, allowing local business owners to showcase their commitment to following public health and safety guidelines by taking the #MartinTogether pledge. Components of the pledge include the most up-to-date recommendations set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Once the pledge is signed, each business will be added into the #MartinTogether directory so residents and tourists alike will feel confident with the participating businesses safety efforts when shopping.
The website also features a downloadable #MartinTogether tool kit businesses can utilize as part of their COVID-19 response, complete with branded signage and social distancing floor decals. The toolkit also includes traveler safety information and health guidance, trip planning resources and a link to tourism information. As an added incentive to participate, the #MartinTogether program will be bolstered by a paid local media campaign.
