Edmonton Tourism launches Twitter vending machine
June 25, 2015, Edmonton – Edmonton Tourism's Twitter vending machine will hit the open road to Fort McMurray and Saskatoon this summer, enticing visitors to tweet and win prizes such as hotel stays, gift cards and attractions passes.
"This is a great opportunity for us to reach visitors in neighbouring cities to encourage them to make a trip to Edmonton this summer," said Maggie Davison, vice-president of Edmonton Tourism, in a news release. "Edmonton was recently recognized, by National Geographic, as one of the best summer destinations in 2015. With festivals and events, concerts, great restaurants, local boutiques, and long summer days, Edmonton is the place to visit."
"Our team has worked closely with all of our tourism businesses and they've shown us tremendous support by offering prizes to fill the vending machine," Davison said. "We are fortunate to have such a great tourism community and we get excited about opportunities to show visitors our authentic and unique experiences."
Visitors must include the hashtag #ExploreEdmonton to be eligible for prizes.
