The ‘In Utah’ campaign is managed by the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development in partnership with Salt Lake City-based Rumor Advertising.

‘In Utah’ is a public information and education initiative funded with CARES Act money appropriated by the Utah Legislature (in H.B. 4001). This initiative encourages Utahns to shop and buy local goods, services and cultural experiences. It’s objective is statewide economic reactivation through the support of local businesses and nonprofits.

‘In Utah’ serves as an umbrella campaign for many COVID-19 pandemic response initiatives, supporting ‘Healthy In Utah’ and ‘Learn & Work In Utah’ (from H.B. 5010). Several other legislative special session initiatives are named after the state’s ‘In Utah’ campaign, including ‘Shop In Utah,’ ‘Safe In Utah,’ and ‘Create In Utah.’
