ACEDC’s Marketing and Tourism Committee works with the director to manage the website and Facebook pages. They create video content to encourage both visitors and resident to spend time in the community, visit various attractions and events, and enjoy nature in Adams County. Every few years they publish an Adams County Guide Book with around 100 pages of information about the community.
Pre-COVID and now again, groups and group travel associates can contact the office to develop itineraries that meet the interests, schedule, and time of year that the group would like to spend in Adams County.
The Committee also works with the local attractions and resources to create cross-promotion ideas and targeted marketing programs and as well as share information about possible grants.
The Committee in past years has done television ads for the Des Moines market area, print ads for southwest Iowa, Omaha, Des Moines and Kansas City newspapers, brochures, posters, and videos.
