Tourism Industry Update - April 6, 2021
In this week’s Tourism Industry Update, Anna announces the arrival of the 2021 Visitor Guides and shares details on an Explore Minnesota Co-op Program survey, an upcoming restaurant panel, and the 2021 Zenith Spirit Award.
Co-Op Opportunities Survey:
These opportunities allow our partners to expand their marketing efforts at significantly reduced rates, as Visit Duluth shares in the cost of the campaigns. Current opportunities include TV, outdoor digital boards, online ads, print ads in several publications, Facebook ads and Instagram takeovers. We hope to expand this program with additional opportunities that our partners see the most value in.
