London, ON: February 11, 2013: Elgin County Economic Development has received
an Economic Developers Council of Ontario award in recognition of the combined 2012
Savour Elgin/Elgin Arts Trail Guide. The award was presented to Elgin County on
February 7, 2013 at an event held at the London Convention Centre. In addition,
Elgin County received honourable mention for the Elgin County Living Television
Series on Rogers TV and the ElginLicious Marketing Campaign.
"It is an honour for Elgin County to be recognized amongst our provincial peers,"
said Elgin County Warden Cameron McWilliam. "It is evidence of the Economic Development
department’s commitment to the promotion, growth and support of our business community."
The guide was developed in conjunction with marketing firm Yfactor and Elgin Arts
Trail partners the Elgin Business Resource Centre and the St. Thomas Elgin Public
Art Centre. The guide takes residents and visitors on a journey to some of the area's
best restaurants, farmers' markets and wineries, as well as the area's finest art
galleries, studios and artisan craft locations.
2012 marked the third season of the highly successful Savour Elgin Culinary Trail
and the second season of the award winning Elgin Arts Trail. It was evident that
Savour Elgin and the Elgin Arts Trail have similar audiences, so in 2012 the decision
was made to combine the two guides into one to allow for increased cross promotion.
