Time is running out to sign up for our 2013 Partner Program!
We have a number of NEW benefits this year, including enhanced listing features on ThisIsCooperstown.com, such as photo galleries, video, packages and reservation system links, and more!
We’re also redesigning our direct response “lure piece” to be more comprehensive.  The number of pages is increasing from 14 to 24, and partners will be listed in the book with addresses and contact information, something new this year – so we need to know who’s “in” a little earlier than last year.
If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of being a partner of the Otsego County Tourism program and want information about our three partnership levels, please contact Deb Taylor at taylord@otsegocounty.com to discuss your options!

Ambassador Program
The country tourism program is re-introducing the Ambassador Program, which is intended to provide service staff with first-hand knowledge of our tourism properties by actually visiting them.  The program is scheduled for the last week of May, first week of June.  It’s open to attractions, lodging and restaurants.  Attraction that charge admission will provide two tickets per employee; the lodging and/or restaurants will provide a refrigerator magnet or some small token.  Employees will receive a punch card for each of the partner properties.  More details to come as we get closer to the date – any input is welcome! E-mail Deb attaylord@otsegocounty.com.
