In summer 2010, Oshkosh, Wisconsin’s Event City, was announced as Oshkosh’s new destination brand and strategic marketing direction. After more than a year of research and discovery, this exciting new identity was revealed at a community brand launch event.
With the help of the Oregon-based consulting firm, Total Destination Marketing, the Oshkosh Convention & Visitors Bureau conducted a series of community and visitor interviews, surveys and focus groups, that resulted in a recognizable shift from Oshkosh’s previous geographic identity to one that elicits greater excitement and engagement from visitors and locals alike. The research revealed an underlying theme evident in Oshkosh’s attributes and emotional appeal: Events!
