City of Athens Promotes Tourism with New High Definition Video
ATHENS – In today’s competitive tourism market, video is not an option but a must. With this in mind, the City of Athens Department of Tourism has teamed up with Phillips Productions of Dallas, Texas to produce the City’s first tourism video to attract visitors to the City of Athens.
The City of Athens Department of Tourism has been working closely with the staff at Phillips Productions to produce a high quality video that brings to life the experience and ideas of what visitors can see and do here. “Athens has so much to offer visitors and our goal was to produce a video that speaks directly to the visitor and that captures the natural beauty that is Athens,” said Sherri Skeeters, tourism coordinator for the City of Athens Department of Tourism.
Michael Grant, director of marketing and strategic planning of Phillips Productions said, “Our company has a rich tradition in the art of storytelling. We used this powerful resource to produce a unique approach to the Athens video. We believe the storytelling technique is an authentic experience that viewers will enjoy while seeing all the things that make Athens a special place to visit.”
The video captures stunning imagery and the charm of Athens from its nature trails and gardens to historic sites and outdoor adventures, and offers an invitation to viewers to get away for a while, relax and enjoy some new and exciting scenery.
The new video is available on the City of Athens Department of Tourism’s website at www.AthensTX.org and will be used to further promote Athens as a visitor destination through Texas tourism websites, including online advertising and promotions for the Department of Tourism.
