WESTFIELD WELCOME WAGON WILL ENHANCE WESTFIELD’S VISITOR EXPERIENCE

WESTFIELD, IN – Hamilton County Tourism and the city of Westfield are teaming up to create a mobile hospitality center in Westfield. The Westfield Welcome Wagon will be used to greet visitors and residents at Grand Park and community events, and was granted to the city by Hamilton County Tourism.

“Grand Park attracts 1.5 million visits a year to Westfield and we want to greet our visitors with a warm Westfield Welcome,” explains Mayor Andy Cook. “With the Westfield Welcome Wagon, we now have the ability to showcase our hospitality initiative the most visible way possible on a 400 acre sports park.”

“We tested a mobile tourism vehicle concept at a number of locations throughout Hamilton County and found that the program worked exceptionally well at large sporting events,” commented Karen Radcliff, vice president and chief strategy officer for Hamilton County Tourism.  “With Westfield’s welcome program looking for a mobile command center for volunteer and hospitality operations, it seemed like an ideal partnership and solution.”

The Westfield Welcome Wagon will make its debut this weekend, April 22-24, during the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League (EYBL), the Crossroads of America College Showcase and the Spring Shootout. Tournament officials are estimating nearly 40,000 visitors will be coming to Grand Park over the three day period.

The Westfield Welcome Wagon will also be used at community events to share information with residents about Grand Park and the city of Westfield.
