2020 Shawnee Magazine Visitor’s Guide Edition Earns TIAK Award
On October 30th, 2020 Visit Shawnee was honored to be awarded for it's 2020 Shawnee Magazine Visitor's Guide Edition!
An Exciting Announcement
Each year the Travel Industry Association of Kansas announces a variety of tourism-related marketing awards at the annual Kansas Tourism Conference. This year during the virtual conference Visit Shawnee's 2020 Shawnee Magazine Visitor's Guide Edition was named the "Best Small Budget Outsourced Visitor's Guide of 2020."
Visit Shawnee partners annually with local publisher Sunflower Publishing to produce the Visitor's Guide Edition of the Shawnee Magazine. Visit Shawnee provides insights and suggestions on the editorial content to Sunflower Publishing and provides specific information for the Shawnee Community Map found in the center of the issue and the Shawnee Visitor's Guide that can be found at the end of the issue. Additionally, Visit Shawnee traditionally secures and distributes an overrun of the Shawnee Community Maps for community events.
Traditionally the Shawnee Magazine is published in May each year, however with many hiccups related to COVID-19 happening in 2020 this edition was published a few months later than normal. However, the 2020 Visitor's Guide Edition still received much positive feedback from the businesses who were featured, visitors and Shawnee residents. Specifically here is a list of businesses that had an editorial story about them:
- The Red Thread
- Drastic Measures
- City of Shawnee Parks & Rec
- Sancho's Streetside
- Park Lanes Family Fun Center
- Shawnee Mission School District Aquatic Center
- JCPRD's Mid-America Sports Complex
