W.Va.'s capital city aims marketing at Jamboree
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Charleston Convention and Visitor Center is setting its marketing sights on the 2013 National Jamboree of the Boy Scouts of America.
The bureau has commissioned a 2-minute video to promote West Virginia's capital city to the 50,000-plus Scouts, volunteers, staff and families that will encamp at Summit Bechtel Reserve in Fayette County in mid-July.
The video brands Charleston as the Gateway to the Jamboree and touts the city's attractions. It promotes the West Virginia State Museum and shopping, food and recreational opportunities.
The convention bureau says special events are planned in Charleston before and after the Jamboree to attract visitors.
