Cooperative Partnership Program

Annually, the Iowa Tourism Office invests more than $500,000 in its Cooperative Partnership Program, negotiating the purchase of large advertising buys and then selling that space back to our tourism partners at a cost far cheaper than what they could purchase directly. In addition, the Cooperative Partnership Program allows the Iowa Tourism Office to diversify its audience and gives the industry a range of advertising choices - from group travel to boomer to meetings-focused publications and niche web sites. The program truly is a public/private partnership that extends the reach of Iowa's travel message and gives the tourism industry a chance to be a part of Iowa's broader marketing efforts.
