New funding expands Raleigh attractions

November 18, 2011 by  

With a recent influx of $3 billion in government and private funding, Raleigh, North Carolina has recently reinvented itself as the “New South”, a new sought-after destination that offers newly-expanded world class museums, a re-invigorated hockey team and other professional sports, arts entertainment that includes the opera, ballet, the symphony and nationally recognized theatre.

The Convention and Visitors Bureau of Raleigh has been actively promoting the city using services such as flyer printing to promote attractions based on common interests and personal preferences which have been grouped together in such categories as “Foodie”, “Free Spirit”, “Adrenalin Junkie”, and “Lifelong Learner”. The Bureau has also created a special media kit that includes quick facts about Raleigh, the venerable ABC’s of Raleigh and a flyer on the descriptions of these categories of trips.

A recent renovation and expansion of the Contemporary Art Museum has created three large yet intimate gallery spaces and education space that provides for art and design programming for both youth and adults. An 80,000 square-foot addition is being planned for the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science to open in the Spring of 2012 which will house a huge globe that will display the city skyline. The North Carolina Museum of Art was also recently renovated to provide a more modern-day approach that emphasizes the building’s increased openness and connection to nature. There is no doubt that flyer printing from each of these museums will inform visitors of these latest developments and attract those who may not have previously thought of visiting these sites.
