CVB needs 2015 Coshocton County events

| August 5, 2014

COSHOCTON – It’s time to send in your 2015 events to the Coshocton Visitors Bureau (CVB) for possible free inclusion on the Visitors Bureau website and other free event listings available in magazines, newspapers, online and other media.

Jan Myers, Director of the Coshocton Visitors Bureau said she would like to see as many of Coshocton’s festivals and events included in the various outlets she has available to help promote Coshocton County.

“We are interested in any event that would draw visitors to Coshocton County as well as those that are of local interest,” said Myers.

Myers also encourages event planners to look at the Visitors Bureau website when planning upcoming events.

“We have a fairly complete list of the major events in our area on our website,,” she said. “And if you go to the Google Calendar on our events page, it might help with planning around other big events going on in the community.”

Myers adds that the sooner she has information about an event, the more likely she is able to help promote it.

“We have to send many of our event listings out a year in advance to be considered for publications,” she said. “We have been pretty successful in the past few years at getting Coshocton featured in numerous top publications because we get the information out in a timely manner.”

Send your 2015 event information to the Coshocton Visitors Bureau by August 21, 2014, in the following format:

  1. Name of the event
  2. Location (and physical address for GPS)
  3. Dates & Times
  4. Admission / Parking Cost
  5. Registration Information (if applicable)
  6. Information Contact name, phone, email
  7. Photos of the event (digital)
  8. Website (or other online page) to link to for event
  9. Brief description (1 to 2 sentences) of the event. (Think – ‘why should someone come from out of town to your event?’)
  10. Do you need Vendors? – If so – send us the vendor information and/or vendor form.

Myers said that the Coshocton Visitors Bureau also needs brochures or flyers from all tourism related businesses, restaurants (menus), and events in the area.

“We send out over 50 requested visitor packets each week and can include this kind of additional information if we have it,” she said. “Plus, now that we have a much more visible office location, we are really going through lots of local literature. Just in the month of July alone we had over 1200 people into our building looking for information about our area.”

Mail or email your event information  to The Coshocton CVB, 432 N. Whitewoman Street (Roscoe Village), Coshocton, OH 43812 or [email protected]. You can also drop your information and brochures off at the CVB office.  For more information, call (740) 622-4877.
