The Ohio State Fair is underway and runs through Sunday, August 6, so make your plans to visit! This year’s Development Services Agency/TourismOhio booth is titled “Innovation. Ohio. Find It Here.” and features partner businesses from around the state with some of their most innovative technology. The booth is expected to be a visitor favorite, with a communicating hologram kiosk, 3-D printer, drone, robotic arms, and the TourismOhio 360 Virtual Reality experience. Additionally, a large video screen will preview the TourismOhio Fall TV commercial. When entering the booth, visitors will walk under the new Ohio Welcome road sign which is beginning to be used on roads entering the state. When leaving the booth, visitors will see, “Thank You for Visiting!”
The booth will again feature a State of Ohio Agency Scavenger Hunt that links nine agencies: Ohio Grape Industries, Ag is Cool/OhioProud, Ohio Department of Health, Ohio Department of Transportation, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Ohio Department of Commerce, Ohio Department of Mental Health, Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services and ODSA/TourismOhio. Participants are encouraged to move around the Ohio State Fairgrounds to collect stamps from all locations in order to enter a drawing to win an Ohio getaway to one of the Ohio State Park’s newly renovated cabins. This year, an electronic version of the scavenger hunt can be found on the Ohio State Fair website as well as accessed on smartphones.
Booth visitors can pick up a copy of the Ohio Travel Guide and Ohio. Find it Here. branded tote bags. A BIG thank you to our peer state agencies, especially the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, for the prize donation. Come out and find us in the Bricker Marketplace during the fair – this booth is a must-see!
