Visit Savannah is developing a new initiative to drive more convention attendee traffic to Chamber member businesses. We call it the “Show Us Your Badge” program and we plan to launch it by the second quarter of this year.
As a Savannah Chamber/Visit Savannah member, your business is invited to participate in this discount program that ideally will help drive new patronage to you from folks visiting Savannah to attend meetings, conventions and trade shows. To a large degree, those events tend to happen mostly Monday through Thursday, with leisure travelers populating more of the weekend stays.
We are asking that you offer AND HONOR a special discount, of your choice, to those who present their convention badge during their stay. In turn, Visit Savannah will work with the event producers to promote those participating businesses and special offers via SavannahMeetings.com and specifically through the event and convention websites.
This experimental program will be evaluated throughout the year with a determination by November if we will continue it into 2016.
All you need to do is complete the “Show Us Your Badge” special offer form and scan/send it to Kim Rodenberg, destination services manager, at KRodenberg@VisitSavannah.com.
Thank you for your consideration of this new program. With more national conventions and meetings coming to Savannah than ever before, a program like this is bound to help create traffic that you may not be realizing now. If you have specific questions, please contact Kim at the email address above.
