As Part of Marketing Blitz

Cars wrapped with this advertisement will be seen throughout Philadelphia as part of a promotional campaign by Destination Marketing.

COOPERSTOWN – Two lucky Philadelphia residents may soon be able to find themselves in Cooperstown thanks to a contest and marketing campaign through a new partnership with Carvertise and the Destination Marketing Corporation for Otsego County.

“We’re always on the lookout for creative ways to break through the white noise of advertising,” says Cassandra Harrington, Executive Director of Destination Marketing. “This campaign is effective on its own, but also complements other components of our marketing strategy.”

Through Nov. 23, select Uber cars will be outfitted with a customized advertisement . The goal is to generate a large volume of visual impressions throughout Philadelphia, a target market for potential visitors to the Cooperstown area.

The contest – which will run on the “This is Cooperstown” Facebook page through October – will award one grand prize winner a trip for two to Cooperstown, with accommodations provided by
