Promoting Agritourism + Attracting Food and Hospitality Businesses to the Finger Lakes

The Canandaigua Chamber of Commerce had plans to host the premier farm-to-table event in the Finger Lakes. Then COVID-19 came along. So the Chamber worked with our team at 29 Design Studio to transform the event from an in-person model to a hybrid event. The 29 Design Studio team helped the Chamber nimbly switch up the messaging and marketing tactics to bring in attendees.

How did we turn this into a hybrid event? Every participant received a curated event kit. Each kit included a book about the Finger Lakes Wine Industry, tasty treats from local Finger Lakes businesses, and business information. 29 Design Studio handled the event branding, strategy, web design and development, public relations, email marketing, and social media

As experts in the industry, our team also moderated panels on topics related to business plans for agri-culinary ventures and restaurant industry trends. 

29 Design Studio created a branded event that lets the world know that in the Finger Lakes, “The future looks delicious”.

“Engaging creative. Responsive staff. Measurable results. With 29 Design Studio, we were able to keep our event attendance on par, even when we postponed and transitioned from in-person to online!”
