MARKETING / DISTRICT IDENTITY & STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS

The Marketing Committee works to promote visitation to Fisherman's Wharf. The Committee focuses its attention on approving the annual marketing plan and overseeing its execution. The committee will advise on management of current media assets including the website, social media, brochure, etc. The committee will make full use of limited funding by capitalizing on earned media opportunities with local press and travel journalists. The Committee will oversee all district events including Wharf Fest, 4th of July, and Fleet Week. They will also try to secure sponsors to supplement the advertising budgets. The Committee will also provide recommendations on communication strategies between the CBD and tourists, locals, industry members, media, the event & meeting planner segment, and the community.
