How would you describe Wichita to a friend from Michigan? To a student from Zimbabwe? To a business looking to relocate from Connecticut? In essence, what makes Wichita Wichita?

That's what city leaders want to know, and what they want your help discovering.

Go Wichita Convention and Visitors Bureau, along with the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce, Greater Wichita Economic Development Coalition, Wichita Downtown Development Corporation, Wichita Community Foundation and Wichita State University, are working together to define Wichita's brand. They will share that brand with visitors and potential residents, businesses, and students.

They want to hear what you think makes the city unique--whether it's the Keeper of the Plains, the Wichita Wingnuts, Flying Donuts or something else altogether.
