Bringing awareness and knowledge of Downtown Excelsior Springs is a primary goal of the Downtown Excelsior Partnership.  DEP’s mission not only includes creating awareness amongst the residents of Excelsior Springs, but to educate and increase tourism from individuals in the entire state of Missouri.  DEP is able to do all of these things through continual market research and an effective marketing plan that integrates a Downtown Excelsior Springs brand.  DEP has set out a program that promotes not only Downtown Excelsior Springs, but the Visit Excelsior campaign as a unique destination of choice.  The intent behind the marketing effort is to build recognition for Downtown Excelsior Springs and all that we have to offer, with the ultimate goal of generating more business and revenue for Downtown and the entire Excelsior Springs area.  Because of how important these efforts are to the overall economic status of Downtown, DEP would like to share their 2018 marketing efforts and total spend to date.

DEP is responsible for these marketing efforts with a total spend of $25,983 .
