(Wichita, KS) Van Horn Promotion & Marketing has been named the promotion agency for WaterWalk.  In making the announcement, Doug Rupe, WaterWalk Executive Vice President, commented, “We are excited about the experience, expertise, creativity, and enthusiasm Sharon and her team bring to WaterWalk.  She has been involved in the Wichita community for many years, both in professional and volunteer roles.  Sharon shares our vision and is committed to making the WaterWalk neighborhood one of the premiere destinations in Wichita", he said.

“After living in Wichita all my life, it is very rewarding to have the opportunity to be involved in this multi-use project that will be enjoyed not only today but for generations to come", said Van Horn. "The others on our event team bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in event management, culinary endeavors and social networking.  We plan to have exciting things happening at WaterWalk and invite the community to join in”, she said.

In their presentation last week, Goody Clancy described Downtown as a collection of very unique neighborhoods offering diversity in housing, entertainment, food, retail and business.  WaterWalk, with its proximity to the river, convention center complex, planned retail, office and entertainment venues, will give Wichitans a new and unique Downtown experience.  One of Van Horn’s first tasks is to assemble a Community Advisory Panel, insuring the planned events and activities reflect the vision of WaterWalk.
