April 08, 2014 - 3:34 PM

VERNON - Watkin Motors and Marjak Leasing are supporting Tourism Vernon as the official vehicle sponsors for the organization, providing a 2014 Ford Escape—an appropriate name for a tourism vehicle—that allows visitor services to “go mobile”.

“Since we first went mobile by offering visitor services outside of our Visitor Centres in 2009, Watkin Motors and Marjak Leasing have supported us as our official vehicle sponsors,” said Michelle Jefferson, manager of Tourism Services. “During this five-year partnership, we have enjoyed three different vehicles that help Tourism Vernon respond to the changing needs for visitor services. The cars also act as moveable billboards in helping promote our services.”

The tourism vehicles are used to attend tradeshows, events and provide information at locations inside and outside of Vernon, helping to raise awareness of Vernon and our visitor services. They have also been used to provide tours to visiting media and dignitaries when they visit Vernon.  The sponsorship of the vehicle also allows the department to manage overall costs.

“We are so grateful for the support of Watkin Motors and Marjak Leasing,” said Jefferson.
