Bring it Downtown

bringitdowntownlogo The Bring It! Downtown Marketing Campaign was created to help market and rebrand downtown Wilmington and to define a universal image for downtown that all businesses can embrace and utilize to create a unified message. 

 

Ultimately, the campaign's goal is to encourage locals and visitors to spend more time in historic downtown Wilmington through branding and education.  By educating people on the ease and abundance of parking and the many options for entertainment, we can convince people to make downtown their destination.  Watch a Video.
