A couple weeks ago, Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island (TWEPI) announced the winners of the first ever Best of Windsor Essex, a new campaign that ran from November to December 2015 with the ambitious goal of putting together the most comprehensive list of the ?Best Of? things to see and do in their region.
The Best of Windsor Essex campaign engaged locals and visitors. They were asked to share their favorite attractions and drew a tremendous response with over 3,500 businesses being nominated.
You can check out the full list of winners at bestofwindsoressex.ca, a great resource if you’re looking to explore the region.
It’s a pretty great initiative on the part of the region. Nominees and winners will be able to use the campaign to differentiate their business, increase their visibility, validate their achievements, and as a strong testimonial of their offerings. It’s has created an authentic list that is expected to resonate with visitors (like yourself, perhaps?), giving the region the opportunity to highlight the best of what it has to offer.
?The level of engagement generated by this campaign exceeded our expectations. Locals are justifiably proud of our area and we anticipate that this list will inspire locals and visitors alike to explore our region�s iconic experiences, hidden gems and everything in between,? says Gordon Orr, CEO of Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island.
We were particularly excited to hear that Chef Benjamin Leblanc-Beaudoin, of Feast On Certified Iron Kettle B&B was chosen as the region’s best chef! Chef Ben works hard to foster relationships with local growers in Essex County. From greenhouses growing beautiful romaine and kale in the coldest months to beautiful tomatoes fresh from the sun soaked fields in August — you’ll find local food putting it’s best foot forward on his plates.
Congratulations Chef Ben — and congratulations to all those chosen at the Best Of Winder-Essex!
