Destination Milton Keynes, the official tourism organisation for MK, is asking residents, visitors, businesses and anyone else to spread the love with the launch of #LoveMK Day today!
Their aim is to not only promote Milton Keynes as a leisure and business destination but also to harness the pride that many people have in their city. The visitor economy is worth over £200 million to the area and encouraging the community to get involved in promoting their city, it could increase the wider benefits even further.
They are asking the MK Twitter community to use the hashtag #LoveMK all on their tweets today to try and get it tending in the UK. Although just a small gesture, they are hoping that by promoting the city via the social media channel they can raise the profile of Milton Keynes and its status as a visitor destination.
The day also coincides with the launch of the new LoveMK Guide which has been produced by MK Web and Destination Milton Keynes and shows all the amazing activities on offer in the area.
Carys Underwood, Marketing Manager at DMK, said: “We’re hoping that the Twitter community will help us out and get #LoveMK trending across the UK on 1 May to not only promote MK as a destination but to show how much pride they have in the place that they live and work.”
To get involved and to show your support just use #LoveMK on any tweets you send today and help spread the love. You can also follow @DestinationMK for special competitions and offers on the day.
Why not get in touch with @MKDonsFC and let us know why you #LoveMK
