Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau Announces
New for 2014: Hotel Week

(MADISON) The Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau (GMCVB) is excited to announce the Greater Madison area’s first Hotel Week. Hotel Week 2014, one of the first in the nation, consists of a partnership between the GMCVB and local hoteliers to showcase the incredible offerings of our local accommodations to a wide range of visitors. Special Hotel Week packages will be available at three separate price points ($75, $100 or $125 a night). The 10-day long event will run from January 30 through February 9, 2014. This new promotional offer will have an exclusive website associated with it featuring itinerary and additional activity suggestions for guests to enjoy while they are visiting the Madison area.

“The post-holiday season doesn’t mean the end of tourists visiting Madison,” said local hotelier Jason Ilstrup, General Manager of Hotel RED. “But it can be a traditionally slower time for our industry. We were excited by the idea of creating Hotel Week and by partnering with the GMCVB and others in our hotel industry. We were guided by the principle of creating a great deal on a great experience and in Hotel Week we truly feel we have created something quite special for guests to Madison,” he noted.

GMCVB will be partnering with local media and other key partners to help promote this new and special offer.

The GMCVB is honored to play a key role in supporting the more than 19,000 Dane County jobs supported by tourism. Promoting tourism in Madison since 1972, the GMCVB continues to work strategically to expand upon the more than $1.7 billion dollars generated by visitor spending in Dane Country every year.
