Staff Reports

The City of San Marcos Arts Commission will host a marketing workshop geared toward event organizers on Thursday, May 12 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The workshop will be held at the San Marcos Activity Center Multipurpose Room, 501 E. Hopkins St. 

“Artists and event organizers are doing exciting things in our community, from music events and festivals to gallery showings and arts workshops,” said Arts Coordinator Trey Hatt. “We want to give them tools and advice so they can inform even more people about their events – which translates to higher attendance.”  

The workshop will cover best practices for social media marketing, advertising, search engine guidelines, websites made simple, and other marketing necessities.

Topics will be presented by City staff from the Convention and Visitor Bureau. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentations.
