Videos showcase best of Agassiz

District will have access to promotional tools for three years

The District of Kent’s website will soon feature a trio of slick videos to help promote the region to the world.

Heidi Lam, an archiving, data and GIS technician for the district, showed council the final versions of the videos at Monday night’s meeting. She also asked for council’s input on any potential changes.

Each video runs about one minute long. The first one features Mayor John Van Laerhoven describing life in the District of Kent. The second talks about agri-tourism and features hazelnuts, tulips, cheese production and the annual Corn Festival, among other highlights. The third video talks about the quality of life in this area.

“This is an opportunity to showcase the best the community has to offer,” Lam said.

The videos were created in partnership with a company called CGI, and are designed to drive tourism and economic growth. The videos were free for the municipality, and will be funded by ad space sold by CGI. Similar videos have been created by CGI in Williams Lake, Parksville, Langley and Chilliwack, Lam said.

The District of Kent will have the use of the videos for three years, and a link on their website will direct internet users to the video.
