Syracuse Chamber of Commerce gets Text Happy

Basketball fans are coming to Syracuse this weekend to watch the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 at the Carrier Dome. The Syracuse Chamber of Commerce is trying to make sure that all the tourists leave Syracuse with a good impression of the city. Danica Bryant, the Director of Communications, says that they are trying something new to keep all the visitors up to date about what's going on in Syracuse. People can text 'DOME' to a number listed in the Syracuse travel guide. People who text the number receive updates about what's going on in Syracuse.

'Already today we've sent out about ten text messages like, "Good morning, sunny in Syracuse, don't forget your shades.", "there's free open basketball to watch at the Dome", Bryant say "so we're gonna be doing that all weekend long, which I think is unique, and people will remember that, and have a positive spin on Syracuse."

Bryant says that about 100 people have signed up so far, and she hopes that by the end of the weekend thousands of people will sign up for the service.
