Share Your Deals During National Travel and Tourism Week

In celebration of Ohio Tourism Day on May 9 and National Travel and Tourism Week, TourismOhio is offering our industry partners an opportunity to jump-start spring travel sales and encourage visitors to plan their Ohio getaways.

We invite all Ohio tourism industry members to create special offers on lodging, attraction tickets, meals, etc. to be made available to consumers on Ohio.org.

Details:

  • Your Ohio Tourism Day offer can be a deal, package or discount. If you already have a listing on Ohio.org, you can add information to your existing listing.
  • Offers will be available to consumers via our website from May 6-12, 2018, the duration of National Travel and Tourism week.
  • Be sure to include links directing consumers to your website for purchase and redemption.
  • Consider offers that will appeal to your potential visitors. (It’s often said, the only good deal or discount is the one that gets redeemed)
