There will be a certified "Google trusted photographer" in the region this summer to shoot Rossland places of business.

There will be a certified “Google trusted photographer” in the region this summer (July/August) to shoot your place of business (entering your business and other interiors).

The photo tour, arranged through Tourism Kootenay Rockies, can be linked to a business’ Kootenay app listing, KootenayRockies.mobi listing, Google places listing, Google+ page and website.

The cost is $220. To proceed, a business needs to have a listing on www.KootenayRockies.mobi and set up a Google Places listing (must have a Gmail account, too). More details (i.e. photo samples) are available online at www.krtourism.ca/googleplaces.

This project is open to all registered Kootenay Rockies businesses (i.e. accommodation properties, retail stores, restaurants, attractions, adventure operators, golf courses, etc.). Space is limited and the booking deadline is Friday, June 14.

If a business has any questions regarding this new marketing project, please contact Deanne Steven at Tourism Rossland at (250) 231-1247. A participation agreement must be signed.
