Regional Collaborator.
The RTN is the only tourism organization of its kind funded across state lines, connecting the visitor with the vibrant tourism experiences of 15 counties in three states: Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The CVBs of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky are funding partners of the RTN and, together, we grow overall tourism economic impact.
 
Growing Partnership and Momentum.
Building upon the momentum of the region's economic growth and cultural vitality, the RTN approached ArtsWave, the lead planner, promoter and fundraiser for 100+ local arts organizations, with an investment and a challenge to grow new public, private and corporate partners and co-create a campaign to increase awareness, engagement and leisure visitation for the region's vibrant arts and cultural entertainment experiences.
 
In 2016 the RTN launched the first year of this campaign that will:
  • Position the region's arts and entertainment experiences as destination drivers to the leisure traveler.
  • Foster regional participation and engagement in arts and cultural entertainment.
  • Elevate the image and positioning of our region as a vibrant place to live, work and play.
 
Through leveraged media, marketing and communications, the RTN attracts new and repeat visitors and dollars to the region. 
Here are a few highlights of how we do it:
