‘Welcome to Surprise’ video showcases attractions, business opportunities, friendly neighborhoods. Neighbors and business professionals introduce you to why they love living and working in Surprise in the city’s new ‘Welcome to Surprise’ marketing and tourism video. The five-minute production airs on Surprise 11 and is available online at www.surpriseaz.gov. Users can click the ‘Welcome to Surprise’ video link on the homepage. “The web is the world’s gateway to the City of Surprise, and this video can serve as our official greeter,” says Marketing and Communications Director Ken Lynch. Host Stacey Lloyd takes viewers on a city tour highlighting Spring Training, the Tennis and Racquet Complex, city parks, and friendly and clean neighborhoods. “In keeping with the council-appointed Strategic Plan, the video supports the city’s economic development opportunities too,” adds Lynch. “The addition of two international solar companies to our town and the growth of our small business community via the AZ Techcelerator are prominently featured.” Regional tourist attractions are also part of the video. “It is important for would-be visitors to know that in addition to the wonderful offerings here in Surprise we are just a short trip away from the White Tank Mountains, Lake Pleasant and professional sporting venues,” says Lynch. The ‘Welcome to Surprise’ video was written and produced by the Surprise Marketing and Communications Department.
