Central Islip, NY (PRWEB) January 29, 2013
On January 29th, 2013, Nationwide Vehicle Wraps Manufacturer, JMR Graphics, responds to an article on WINK News describing a city’s plan to wrap two old trailers and convert them into welcome centers.
According to the article published by WINK News, business leaders in Fort Myers Beach, Fla. plan to use two old camper trailers and convert them into visitor centers for the area.
“We came up with the idea of bringing visitor information right on the beach, right where the visitors are walking. Right now our visitor's information is about two miles off the beach,” Chamber President Bud Nocera said in the article.
The article said the Greater Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce began fundraising to purchase the two 16-foot Airstream "Bambi" model trailers. The Chamber is also raising money to fuel the cost of making them into visitor centers.
Nocera said he hopes to have the money raised by the end of January, just in time for vacation season. He said the budget for each unit totals about $30,000. The article said, “The Chamber purchased the first one for $15,000, but the conversion and bus wrap will cost $13,500, of which the chamber has raised $8,500.”
TJ Pannell, a representative for JMR Graphics, a nationwide vehicle wraps manufacturer, said using trailers as mobile welcome centers is a great idea to promote the city and its tourist attractions. “There are many advantages to using trailer wraps,” Pannell said. “Now the city will be able to advertise everywhere. Whether they want to park by the beach and educate people on what attractions Fort Myers Beach has to offer or whether they are riding through other areas, the trailers will be a source of constant advertisements.”
Pannell said there’s a good chance of increased tourist travel because the welcome centers will be moving around. “There’s more of a chance for people to see what the city has to offer,” he said. “There’s a good chance that the money spent will be returned due to an increase of new tourists and visitors.”
