    October 6, 2021, Wisconsin Rapids, WI – The Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce, Marshfield Area Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Wisconsin Rapids Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Visit Marshfield have partnered together to produce marketing videos for promoting recreation in Wood County.

    To support Wood County’s economic development mission the combined organizations have produced a recreation destination video. These efforts will create awareness and stimulate further growth in Wood County. Additionally, these efforts will elevate current promotions as a tourism destination.

    “We are very excited to showcase the many great outdoor recreation activities in Wood County with these promotional videos,” stated Matt McLean, Executive Director for Visit Marshfield. “These videos and related marketing will target potential and interested visitors who will spend money in our restaurants, retail, hotels, and more when they enjoy all Wood County has to offer,” continued McLean.

    Outdoor Recreation in Wisconsin adds $7.8 billion to Wisconsin’s GDP (2.4%). It also supports 93,000 jobs in the state of Wisconsin. In addition to helping boost local spending, these videos will be available for businesses, organizations, and the County for use as a marketing piece.
