The Finney County Convention and Visitors Bureau fulfills many important roles within Finney County. We are coordinators and cheerleaders, we serve, we tell stories. We are marketers, developers, trainers.
We work tirelessly to spread the message of Finney County, and to serve as brand ambassadors, bringing people into this prairie oasis and helping them to discover it themselves. And then keep discovering it, again and again, year after year.
We believe strongly that Finney County is at its best when its individuals and businesses are at theirs. Thus, we have developed a two-pronged approach with our services. One, we work to strengthen the component parts of the community, through training, community building, and shared learning. And two, we serve as a megaphone to spread the message of Finney county’s success and all it has to offer across Kansas and beyond.
