Pittsburgh PA[edit]

Living in or near Pittsburgh Pa? Some think of it is an abstract area. There are many things to do. Many family activities (science center, zoo, sporting events, and the list can go on). There is also an adult life waiting to be explored. There is never a question on what to see or do. It is only a short drive from one attraction to another. Be prepared to have walking shoes and a need to explore. Do not worry about the dining portion; there are many places to choose. Pittsburgh is a great experience and a wonderful place to enjoy all it has to offer.

Tourism Wikipedia page for "Pure Michigan" - new updates for consideration[edit]

Hi Wikipedia Travel and Tourism Contributors - my name is Chad Wiebesick and I work for the State of Michigan's tourism office, Pure Michigan.

If it is of interest to you, there are some updated data, facts and figures that could be included in the Pure Michigan Wikipedia entry, for your consideration:

The $45 million budget is a bit outdated. That money was to be spread out over a number of years, and was not permanent. The 2014 budget is $29 million and was increased $4 million from last year for international marketing. The 2013 budget was $25 million.

I can provide other data, if you're interested, such as: Pure Michigan named Forbes one of the all-time best tourism campaigns, and is the most visited state tourism website for the past seven years.

We could also consider including information about the current Governor and his support of the campaign.

Also, in the section where the article talks about the website relaunch in 2008, perhaps we update it to say that relaunched its newest website in 2012.

Thank you for your consideration. How is it best to proceed? I have news stories and third party, independent research for this information, should it be helpful in updating the Wikipedia article.

It might be best to drop a {{requested edit}} template onto the talk page of the Wikipedia article, Talk:Pure Michigan, with the proposed changes and cite reliable sources so that someone who doesn't have a stake in the matter may update the article.
For Wikivoyage, the project scope is a little different - voy:Michigan (and the individual cities under it) would have articles, but there are no articles about specific organisations like local or state CVB's. Their articles are cities or destinations. That project is a travel guide (unlike Wikipedia, which is an encyclopaedia) and uses different guidelines, voy:WV:Welcome, tourism professionals and "be fair" instead of WP:NEUTRAL.
