Brewster Chamber discusses site for new tourism Kiosk from Okanogan County Tourism Council


BREWSTER – The Chamber of Commerce discussed potential site selections for a new information kiosk on city property during its regular monthly meeting last Wednesday, May 8. The Okanogan County Tourism Council is providing the kiosks to cities across the county and already has several installed in Pateros, Tonasket, and Oroville.

Chamber Director Anna Marie Dalbey passed around photos of what the kiosk looks like and explained that OCTC is in the process of getting kiosks in place in Winthrop and Mazama, with Brewster, Omak, and Loomis next in the opportunity queue.

Conconully is also on the list, but a large construction crew currently occupies the spot where its kiosk will eventually stand.

Chamber Vice President Hugo Gomez, owner of Gomez Landscaping and Los Paisas Store, offered to assemble and install the kiosk once a site was determined.

The installation of the kiosks and visitor information signage countywide is just one of OCTC’s ongoing projects. Others include:

  • Publication and distribution of a county-wide AG Guide.
  • Hospitality trainings for front line employees.
  • Co-op ads with OCTC members in targeted publications including Northwest Outdoors, Northwest Travel, SnowWest, SnoFlyer, Outdoors Northwest Snow Guide, Cross-Country Skier, Master Skier, and SkiTrax.
  • Exterior panel ads on buses in the Seattle metropolitan area.
  • Ongoing social media initiatives on Facebook & Twitter.
  • Revisions to the county website and OCTC’s search engine optimization.
  • Ongoing revisions to and distribution of the County Travel Planner.
  • Booths at specific market tradeshows.
