TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – Gov. Sam Brownback and Kansas tourism officials are planning an event in Wichita this week to launch this year’s promotional campaign for promoting the state’s destinations.

The event is scheduled for Wednesday morning at Exploration Place in Wichita. Brownback and the other officials are unveiling the campaign under the Kansas tourism brand. It is, “There’s No Place Like Kansas.”

State Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Secretary Robin Jennison plans to participate, along with Assistant Secretary Linda Craghead.

The tourism agency also said that the event will feature Kansan and Nashville country music artist Logan Mize. Promotional videos to be shown around the nation will feature a Mize song called “Sunflowers.”

Representatives from several Kansas tourist destinations and period re-enactors will also be on hand.
