In an effort to provide economic support to Vails lodging partners, the Town of Vail has initiated a new marketing campaign to boost “midweek” business. A special package has been created to reward gift cards to visitors that make a reservation midweek and stay in Vail from now until April 11, 2021. The promotion will help drive occupancy and provide revenue to our local businesses.
A digital marketing campaign developed around a “Work from Vail” concept will be deployed to the front range. Traffic will be driven to the DiscoverVail.com/workcation landing page.
Visitors will have the opportunity to view lodging properties that are participating and book through individual lodge websites that offer the special promotion. To be eligible, guests have to stay during mid-week – Sunday through Wednesday.
The gift cards will be provided to guests upon check-in and can be used at any participating Vail businesses. The guests email and zip code is required to receive the gift card(s). A one time email invitation to sign up for the Discover Vail Newsletter will be sent to guest. Please see program details below.
