This page is intended to help partners of Visit Spokane with submitting special offers through our online portal. If you're not familiar with Visit Spokane special offers, please visit: www.visitspokane.com/things-to-do/special-offers or contact us for Partnership information.
Visit Spokane sends out an email to Partners twice a year with updated seasonal package requirements and deadlines for participation. If you have not received the email, contact your Visit Spokane representative to make sure you're on the mailing list and we will forward the latest information right to your mailbox.
Be sure to craft your custom stay and play offer to fit into one of our themed categories listed below. These categories are important because we tailor our seasonal advertising towards demographics that are associated with these categories:
Girlfriends Getaway – Women travelers love taking vacations together to spend time shopping, wine tasting, sightseeing, golf and more! These packages could be a discounted hotel rate paired with passes to the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture or a discount at a spa, mall or restaurant.
Mancations – Guys love testosterone-fueled trips where they can hang out and be boys. These offers could be good hotel rates with a round of golf or fly fishing lessons on the Spokane River with a beer tasting at No-Li Brewhouse.
Family Fun – Families come to Spokane to do all kinds of things! How about creating a package with a hotel stay, some day passes to Riverfront Park and movie tickets? Don’t forget Mobius and Silverwood are big draws for families as well. Consider including parking as part of the package to make their stay even easier.
Outdoor Adventures – Spokane has tons of outdoor activities for visitors to enjoy! Think about a thrilling raft ride or ski trip with a hotel stay, or provide a discount for your guests who spent the day hiking in one of our gorgeous parks.
Romantic Retreats – Spokane is a great place for couples to get away! Think about packages with champagne and chocolates in a hotel room for a great price, or offer a percentage off a meal to couples visiting the region.
Culinary & Wine – Our city is full of unique, local restaurants and delicious wines. Give your customers a discount on their meal with a purchase of some local wine, or a good hotel rate with a discount on dinner or brunch for two at a yummy eatery! Include tasting fees for local wineries or tickets for a culinary tour through Spokane.
Golf – We have so much to offer visitors who love golf! How about creating a package with a round of golf at one of the area’s beautiful golf courses or a discount at your business for golfers upon proof of play (course receipt)? Pair the round of golf with a discount at a local eatery and you’ve got yourself a package!
Shop 'til you Drop – As a regional hub, countless visitors come to Spokane for destination shopping. Consider giving your guests a gift certificate to a local mall or store with an overnight stay.
Chinese Lantern Festival - Visitors are coming to Spokane and want to package their room and tickets for the Chinese Lantern Festival. Offers can include merchandise, souvenirs or dining options as well.
First Night - Visitors are coming to Spokane for the annual First Night New Year's Eve celebration. Take advantage of the event and package hotel stays with First Night admission buttons. For a particularly inticing offer, consider including party favors like New Year's bubbles. Packages in this category will be promoted leading up to the night of 12/31/15 only.
All offers not fitting our definition of a package deal, including discounts, free items, concert tickets and coupons (not associated with a hotel stay or other package offer) will be placed in a category called "Other Special Offers and Discounts".
