Tourism Marketing Grant Available!

Have no Fear – Help is Here…. The Hutchinson Area Chamber of Commerce and Tourism has a grant to help offset marketing costs to get people to come to your event- Here are the two biggest things to know:

  1.  Marketing (for the grant) must be outside a 30 mile radius of Hutchinson, MN.
  2. The Chamber/Tourism logo has to be included in the ad or marketing medium.

Through our tourism program, we work to attract more people to Hutchinson, MN. We have much to offer, and our businesses are here to serve those who visit. More people in Hutchinson generates more revenue for our businesses…. Which generates more tax revenue…. Which repairs our streets, keeps police officers in our neighborhoods, keeps our water clean… you get where I am going with that.

Several events have applied and received Tourism Marketing Grant money – Hutchinson Area Boat and RV Show, The Big Little Hunting & Fishing Expo, Minnesota Pottery Festival, Hutchinson Jaycee Water Carnival, RiverSong, McLeod County Fair and Minnesota Garlic Festival.

Event Marketing Tip: When you are setting up a marketing plan, be sure to diversify. Publications, radio, posters and social media are all important in today’s world. Be sure you are doing everything to set your event up for success. Focusing too heavily on only one of these options can drastically reduce your attendance.

We look forward to receiving your application and we’re happy to answer any questions you may have.

May Business of the Month- Compass Occasions

The Compass Occasions story started during a 12-day road trip from San Francisco to Seattle. Making their way way along the coastal highway & imagining what creating a company of their own would look like. Thinking and analyzing how could they make it happen. 

6 years later, Compass Occasions has evolved into a multidimensional coordinating and design company. Last September, they expanded to a new venue, Art’s Place. Located in downtown Hutchinson, Art’s Place is a history rich venue that provides intimate spaces for meetings and events. In addition to offering an event venue, their company specializes in coordinating Weddings, Non-profit fundraisers, and corporate events.

Business of the Month- April 2021

H Fit 360 opened their doors in June of 2020 in Hutchinson, MN.

This self-described strong willed and determined woman managed through COVID & Main Street road construction to proudly open a new business during a pandemic! Sheila opened H Fit 360, a first-class modern fitness center with a vast array of cardio, strength and group fitness options. When asked, ‘what is the greatest asset of H Fit 360?’ Sheila responded with “Our greatest asset is our people, truly great (qualified) group fitness instructors who possess a natural passion for fitness with the professionalism of being an inspirational leader. Personal training adapted for the individual, not recycled from the previous session”.

Sheila was also asked ‘how does H Fit 360 encourage each and every one of their members whom are all at different stages?’ “H Fit 360 is like an extension of my family, I wear my heart on my sleeve and let my members do the talking. I am not one to boast how much I can lift, show-off my abilities or even feel comfortable in a video of myself. I am here to make our members lives better whether that is through a heavy deadlift, a striking cobra or a deep tissue/muscle release massage. All ages can reap the benefit of movement and my overall goal is to create happier people from within! “

This new contemporary gym consisting of two levels. On the ground floor they offer a dedicated heavy lifting base with a variety of free weight options as well as cardio and free style. The second floor offers another cardio zone for those not wanting to be in the hustle and bustle of the main gym. Alongside the cardio is a group fitness studio, all of which areas are open 24/7.
