INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana officials are looking for ways to lure more tourists to the state.
The Indianapolis Business Journal reports that the Indiana Office of Tourism Development plans to hire a marketing firm to lead the effort.
In a document seeking proposals, state officials say their goal is to become a “leading regional destination” with annual growth exceeding that of adjacent states. The tourism office spends about $2 million annually on marketing services.
The winning firm is expected to develop print, television and radio ads, as well as billboards, email marketing and social media efforts.
