Wind River Country Leads the Way on Google DMO Program

FREMONT COUNTY—Google recently unveiled a new program for Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs), and the Wind River Visitors Council (WRVC) is on the cutting edge with it. The WRVC, Fremont County’s Lodging Tax Board, is the first Wyoming DMO to sign up for the Google DMO Program. The WRVC is doing so in partnership with Truly360, a Google DMO partner company.

Wind River Country is the pilot program for the entire state, and the WRVC knows that the success of this program is dependent on the entire county. Wind River Country businesses, attractions, and destinations will not only get “on the Google map” but also on new Google tools like the knowledge bar, Google posts, Google Trips, and more.

The WRVC and Truly360 invite businesses, organizations and tourism attractions to learn more about Wind River Country’s Complete Google Program at three free Community Google Workshops.

Lander, Wednesday, May 15, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.: Carnegie Room, Fremont County Library, 451 N 2nd St. Co-hosted by the Lander Chamber of Commerce. RSVP here.  http://info.landerchamber.org/events/details/wind-river-country-s-complete-google-program-24008

Riverton, Thursday, May 16, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.: Board Room, CWC Intertribal Center, 2820 W Main St. Co-hosted by the Riverton Chamber of Commerce and Central Wyoming College. RSVP at 856-4801.

Dubois, Friday, May 17, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.: Never Sweat Lodge, 1408 Warm Springs Drive. Co-hosted by the Dubois Chamber of Commerce. RSVP at 455-2556.

These community workshops will be an opportunity to learn more about this pilot program, learn what you can do to show up better on Google platforms, and learn how businesses and attractions can be updated on Google Street View later this summer.
