The 2021 Marketing Plan
Visit Duluth has taken a new strategic and tactical approach to describing our Marketing Plan. This document is designed to be a brief, high-level view of our plans for the coming year.
As we look forward to 2021, we are confident Duluth will continue to experience signs of recovery while we remain acutely aware flexibility and active engagement are critical to our success.
Share Your Photos with Us!
Do you have marketing photos that show how COVID has changed your operations? We want to make sure our current marketing reflects what it looks like to Visit Duluth right now.
The American Rescue Plan Act established the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) to provide funding to help restaurants and other eligible businesses keep their doors open. This program will provide restaurants with funding equal to their pandemic-related revenue loss up to $10 million per business and no more than $5 million per physical location. Recipients are not required to repay the funding as long as funds are used for eligible uses no later than March 11, 2023.
