“Every local who shares a beautiful image of Buffalo this summer will be helping to tell the story of our destination’s transformation to their followers on Instagram, many of whom live out of town and could potentially visit Buffalo in the future. Our locals are some of our best brand ambassadors, and they can help us continue to build the growing buzz about Buffalo through this campaign,” VBN President and CEO Patrick Kaler said. “We’re thrilled that so many of our tourism partners stepped up to contribute to this extraordinary grand prize, and can’t wait to see all of the great #InTheBUF memories and experiences shared this summer.”
