Eagle Visitor Center Goes Hi-Tech

Screen Shot 2016-01-13 at 12.40.48 PMThe Chamber and the Town of Eagle are collaborating to improve how information is provided to the more than 35,000 tourists that come to the the Eagle Information Center, 100 Fairgrounds Road.

An electronic monitor and theft-proof case was purchased through chamber member CS Media and has been installed on the outside of the building to the far left of the main door. It will promote the town’s business centers, events, and points of interest to encourage the visitors to experience more of what Eagle has to offer; the visuals for the monitor will be installed by late January.

In addition to the monitor, an iPad will be installed inside the visitor center for visitors to search out restaurants, services, hotels, and retailers. Business Plus, Charter or Executive members receive a free advertisement on the iPad, which is duplicated at the chamber’s Eagle County Airport kiosk. Click here for details.

Chamber president, Mick Daly, Juice Plus+ said, ‘Every member should take advantage of these advertising options, they costs just pennies a day.’
