Visit Mesquite

1 of 5
Description: In April 2024, Mesquite found itself in the heart of the path of totality of the 2024 Total Eclipse. Recognizing the unique opportunity this presented, Visit Mesquite launched an ambitious campaign called the Solar Rodeo.

This campaign was a collaborative effort involving local stakeholders, businesses, organizations, and attractions. The central strategy revolved around curating one uniform, branded event by working with our partners to each host an individual event. Each partner's contribution was orchestrated and marketed by Visit Mesquite to ensure a cohesive experience for all attendees. Please see attached description for more campaign information.

Additionally, Visit Mesquite fused this event into long-standing Mesquite traditions such as Mesquite Rodeo Parade. This encouraged wide-spread participation and excitement among local residents.

Objectives: Increase Brand Awareness, Promote Local Events, Generate Leisure Tourism

Project Costs: $40,000

Visit Tyler

1 of 5
Description: Visit Tyler was fortunate to work with a local graphic designer who created our Totality Tyler logo for us for free. We hosted several city-wide meetings, inviting travel and tourism related businesses to join us as we shared the education on the eclipse and encouraged them to come on board with us as we marketed a four-day weekend, which would end with the culmination of the eclipse on Monday. We created pages on social media, our website, and on national eclipse sites. We purchased branded items for our gift shop, including eclipse glasses, t-shirts, stickers, and posters to have on display early on, encouraging visitors and residents to be prepared for April 8, 2024. Many hotels were sold out. We registered visitors from more than 25 countries in our Visitor Center that week. Visitor Center sales quadrupled. We had 47K more visitors in our downtown than the previous year. Results were 157% increase on website sessions with a :37 second increase in session duration. 50+ businesses created themes around Totality Tyler.

1. Create a four-day event leading up to the total eclipse by branding the weekend and encouraging business participation to get visitors in their stores.
2. Increase sales in the visitor center store by offering one-of-a-kind branding with our Totality Tyler logo on it.
3. Highlight the importance of working together to create an experience for visitors when they are in the city.

Project Costs: $3,000 Store merchandise
