2013 Spring / Summer Marketing Campaign
The Travel Iowa spring/summer marketing campaign is integrated to include advertising, public relations and social media. Using PR and social media resources, we can leverage our paid advertising and increase awareness of Iowa. We will post our 2013 advertising schedule, print ads, and television ads and hold a corresponding webinar in spring 2013.
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.
