After three years, a current pandemic, multiple strategic meetings, and numerous focus groups, the Greater Lafayette Marketing Coalition kicked off its new brand for Greater Lafayette on Monday, October 26.

The campaign was created to share Greater Lafayette's unique story in a consistent, compelling way. Our brand will be an enduring platform that articulates our region’s identity and point of view. It will help us connect with our audiences through informed and relevant interactions and communications. To become better known and better understood, we must tell our story in a way that inspires those who live in our community, and those whom we want to attract.
