‘Orientation Express’ takes fam tour of Fraser Valley businesses

The Winter Park & Fraser Chamber of Commerce’s Orientation Express Program is targeting front-line staff throughout the community to explore what local businesses have to offer.

This program is intended to build on Open for Business Week (Dec. 1-5). The goal is to use the Orientation Express Program as another tool to internally market what the community has to offer.

The community will be segmented according to the following geographical locations with destination tour stops within each region. Tours will take place between 4-7 p.m.

• Monday, Dec. 1 — Winter Park North

• Tuesday, Dec. 2 — Winter Park South

• Wednesday, Dec. 3 — Granby

• Thursday, Dec. 4 — Cooper Creek Square

• Friday, Dec. 5 — Fraser

How it Works

Passengers (program participants) will be given a “ticket” aboard the Orientation Express. This ticket will list designated tour stops (participating businesses) within the community.

Passengers will have their tickets initialed at the end of each tour and will follow the conductor to the next stop. These tickets will then be entered into nightly prize drawings.

Chamber staff and volunteers will serve as tour “conductors” to lead passengers to and from tour stops (buses will be provided when tour stops are not within walking distance).

When a tour arrives at a business it is up to that individual organization to decide how they would like to use the time allotted (10-15 minutes) to best market their organization (expect giveaways, contests and coupons).

PRIZES will be awarded each night including $50 CASH. There will also be a Grand Prize drawing after the last stop on Friday night for $250 CASH. Passengers will also receive a free drink ticket to redeem the night of their tour.

Passengers will also be asked to vote for their favorite tour stop on the Orientation Express each night.
