Arkansas Industry Insider Newsletter


By now, you may have heard about the new approach we're taking to bring more visitors to Arkansas.  Over the past few months, the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism along with Cranford Johnson Robinson Woods and Aristotle, Inc. have collaborated on a brand new marketing plan aimed at catering to the whims and needs of specific visitors from our feeder markets. The developed plan centers on the ideas of relaxation and rejuvenation, and how to attract regional travelers to specific hubs and corridors of activity along their journey paths.

Of course, a plan as good as this shouldn't be kept a secret -- so we're bringing it to you.  Come join us and learn how we're going to shake up our state by sharing with our future guests ways they can relax in the Natural State.

These eight meetings have been set up throughout the regions -- if you can't attend the one in your area, feel free to join us at any of the other seven locations.
