Economic Development Consultant Paul Rupp said he applied for a $50,000 grant, from which $40,000 would be used to create the video with the remaining $10,000 to be used for marketing and promotional efforts. “The video will promote Revere’s hotels, shops, restaurants, nightlife, parks, open spaces, the revitalization of America’s first public beach and other attractions for the guests staying at Greater Boston’s first luxury resort and casino to experience,” Rupp wrote in the grant application. Rupp said Friday that if funding is approved, the video will be distributed on YouTube, the city’s website and across social media. Although the casino will be approximately five miles away, the purpose is to develop a symbiotic relationship between Encore and Revere’s growing hotel industry. “Revere believes its coming inventory of at least 1,700 hotel keys, its restaurants and its visitor attractions make Revere an attractive add-on for visitors to the new Encore casino,” Rupp said in the grant application.
