First Impressions Tourism in the Upper Peninsula
From William Cronin
We have conducted in-person FIT programs in Houghton, Bessemer, Ironwood, and a countywide FIT in Iron County. During the height of the pandemic, we kicked off our Virtual First Impressions Tourism program, an evaluation of a community’s web and social media presence, with Ironwood and Baraga County. Both programs are currently available.
Please note that these are fee-for-service programs, a full First Impressions Tourism program is $5,000, this entails a team of five visiting your community for 12-24 hours and spending a piece of the fee back in your community. A Virtual FIT program is $915.
