Sportshow Partners Needed

Do you have a great North Dakota attraction that would appeal to outdoor enthusiasts? Looking for a way to get your info in front of thousands of potential outdoor travelers?

North Dakota Tourism is seeking partners for five 2015 sportshows. Partnership opportunities include brochure and in-booth participation. Brochure partnership fee is $75 per brochure, per show, and includes sending your printed materials along with ND tourism staff to your chosen shows to be displayed and distributed on your behalf. In-booth partnerships are a great way to get out and interact with hunters, campers, anglers, hikers and bikers and work a show yourself. You represent your attraction or service within the North Dakota booth alongside ND tourism staff. You can display your own signage and hand out your materials while promoting your destination to potential travelers. The fee for full in-booth partnership is $250 per show.
