Members Marketing Opportunities

Marketing Opportunities

MCCVB provides members with cooperative marketing opportunities throughout the year in various formats. Review the options below and learn how to get involved with each!

NEW- Kind Traveler Hotel Partnership 

MCCVB is embarking on a Destination Sponsorship with the Kind Traveler, the first Give + Get hotel booking and sustainable travel media platform, focused on connecting travelers to sustainable destinations and hotels. This is a key program for MCCVB, continuing to build on our industry-leading Sustainable Moments platform. This opportunity is well suited for our hotel partners with specific sustainability initiatives. In addition to further promoting eco-friendly features, hotels can select a local non-profit organization for guests to donate to as part of their booking (at no cost to the hotel), putting dollars directly back into our community. This partnership is open to hotels only. 

If you are interested in learning more about the program please email us at
