new regional programs
Downtown Tennessee is a program with the objective of developing a “destination like” marketing approach to downtown areas across the region. Downtowns across Tennessee offer a great deal of opportunity and diversity. Downtown experiences enhance the quality of life, quality of a visit, and drive local economies with locally owned shops and restaurants.
Like many efforts, downtowns often depend on various government and private mechanisms when organizing on the local level. The idea behind this program is to strategically align those efforts both locally and regionally. By working together across organizations like chambers of commerce, Main Street programs, and independent movements, this program will be able to develop marketing strategies that provide consistent visitor information for each downtown in the region.
The program launch is projected for spring and summer of 2021 and will be promoted with both printed and digital media. The domain is DowntownTennessee.com.

Become a Tennessean is a liveability focused marketing effort to highlight the benefits of moving to the South Central Tennessee region. The effort will be organized by a region-wide team of ECD, education, real estate, and chamber professionals. This team will compile data on metrics across the liveability standards and highlight key competitive components that Tennessee has versus other states.
This program will also provide important organizational contact information and highlight each community with a landing page that points out the cost of living, job opportunities, housing information, education, and other key points of interest.

sctta regional marketing committee
The SCTTA Marketing Committee was created to help organize marketing assets at the local, regional, and state levels. A key to operating a regional marketing effort is to have an understanding of the assets that our communities have developed and the narratives that are being promoted.
