NCOT grant awards
Northern Nevada grants approved by the Nevada Commission on Tourism were:
A $10,000 grant was approved for the North Tahoe Incline Village/Crystal Bay Visitors Bureau to develop, design and produce a series of trail maps identifying the North Lake Tahoe trail networks. North Lake Tahoe offers an abundance of outdoor activities; the maps will be designed to generate buzz about and raise awareness of the area’s hiking, biking and paddling terrain.
A $15,600 award was granted to Pony Express Territory, an organization that promotes tourism along the Nevada’s U.S. 50 corridor, to film area adventures and historic sites for use in a half-hour television show promoting the area. The show would run on cable TV, as a looping video in area visitors’ centers, and at travel and trade shows. It also would be posted on the Pony Express website and on its YouTube channel.
A $10,000 grant was awarded to the city of West Wendover to create six 30-second TV spots promoting the West Wendover experience: dining, gaming, entertainment, attractions, activities and events. The spots also can be utilized online and on West Wendover’s social media channels.
According to NVIE, the event has been designed specifically to meet the needs of manufacturing and tech industries in Northern Nevada.
