Co-op Program

 

The Travel Wisconsin co-op supports the Wisconsin shared brand promise and helps all of our dollars go further as we drive economic impact. Each year, we evaluate the co-op program to ensure it’s still on brand, aligned with the Travel Wisconsin strategy and provides the greatest possible lift. Travel Wisconsin is pleased to offer a variety of co-op opportunities through December 2023.

The primary objective for the co-op program is to provide strategic and affordable advertising and promotional opportunities to help you engage and attract key audiences to your destination. These programs pool your resources with Travel Wisconsin resources to maximize the value of your dollars and offer opportunities that perhaps would be otherwise budgetarily unattainable. The program also allows you to try new tactics in a guided manner, with the potential for less risk than doing so on your own.

Co-op programs reach across a variety of platforms, including newsletter features, special offers and deals, social media, media familiarization trips and more.

The entire Wisconsin tourism industry can participate in co-op programs — convention and visitor bureaus, chambers of commerce, tourism commissions, lodging properties, attractions, performing arts groups, museums, retail outlets, etc. If you’re supporting traveler spending in Wisconsin, you’re likely eligible to participate.

Once registered for an opportunity through the Travel Wisconsin marketplace, you’ll work with Hiebing, Travel Wisconsin’s advertising agency on marketing programs, or Turner, Travel Wisconsin’s public relations agency on PR programs.
