The Pure Michigan FAM Trip

August 1, 2014 in Past Sponsor

In July, Pure Michigan crossed the border to showcase Michigan State to the Canadian market. Canadians are the number one travellers to US destinations so promoting their US product north of the border proved key in their marketing strategy. Pure Michigan’s goal was to reach Canadian travellers via Canadian online content producers including travel bloggers, writers, and photographers.

Michelle and her team from Pure Michigan spoke about the unique adventures Michigan has to offer travellers including Detroit’s pretty gritty downtown vibe and a water wonderland heaven with over 11,000 inland lakes.
