TV Promotion All Year
The Branson Christmas Coalition, in collaboration with Branson Visitor TV and the Branson/Lakes Area CVB, has initiated a year-round television promotion of the Ozark Mountain Christmas season that will be seen by millions. Two video productions featuring Andy William’s beloved song, “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” will feature highlights of the holiday season and encourage area visitors to join us for our Christmas celebration.
Two versions of the holiday video, one lasting :20 seconds and the other a full minute, were created by Digital Lunchbox, a full-service video production company, active in the Branson area for more than 15 years. The spots are a compilation of high-quality video assets collected from local businesses, shows, attractions, and the Branson/Lakes Area CVB archives. The Branson Christmas Coalition coordinated the production and provided creative direction for the project.
“We are excited to have this opportunity to promote Christmas 12 months of the year,” explained Ann McDowell, Executive Director of the Branson Christmas Coalition, a non-profit organization working to grow and enhance the holiday season since 2015. “The video’s we’ve produced are designed to promote the Ozark Mountain Christmas season, no matter what time of year they are viewed. A few moments of Branson’s incredible Christmas joy are a welcome treat absolutely any time!”
“Branson Visitor TV approached the Coalition, with this plan as a way to enhance our programming for visitors and do our part to invite area visitors back to enjoy the holiday season,” explained Steve Presley, President of Branson Visitor TV ,long-time members of the Branson Christmas Coalition. “Our mission is for Branson Visitor TV to be Branson’s #1 television source for all the great things to see and do while vacationing in the Ozarks. We feature music videos, history segments and weather updates on the quarter hour provided by KY3 Weather Service.”
