A day dedicated to celebrating Milton Keynes is returning for a second year after ‘capturing people’s imagination’ across the city.

Destination Milton Keynes (DMK), the official tourism organisation for MK, has organised another #LoveMK day on Thursday, May 1 to promote Milton Keynes as a leisure and business destination.

The visitor economy is worth over £200 million to the area and by encouraging the community to get involved in promoting their city, DMK claims it could increase the wider benefits even further.

To get involved, just use #LoveMK on all your tweets on the day to try and get it trending in the UK, as it did three times on the same day last year.

Although just a small gesture, DMK is hoping that by promoting the city via the social media channel they can raise the profile of Milton Keynes and its status as a visitor destination.

Carys Underwood, Marketing Manager at DMK, said “Last year’s #LoveMK Day really captured people’s imagination and we had support from all over the UK and beyond.

“We’re hoping that this year the Twitter community will get behind us again and get #LoveMK trending, not only to promote MK as a destination but to show how much pride they have in the place that they live and work in.”

You can also follow @DestinationMK for your chance to win prizes on the day as they run ’12 competitions in 12 hours’ where you could win by just using the hashtag.

And you can download the #LoveMK Day poster and get your photo taken to show your support, tweet it to Destination MK and they’ll RT and add it to their Facebook gallery.
