Don’t miss this opportunity to promote yourself to group planners!

Use the Alert Announcements – along with an ENGAGING photo – to promote your destination, venue, a particular program or a performance! You can publish one announcement per Alert type each month. Be specific and stay fresh with each announcement (new photo, new copy). Announcements can be promotions for new or special programs, an interesting backstory, an upcoming event, information about upcoming productions or exhibits, special pricing alerts, or unique packages you are offering. After the email Alert is sent, your information is also published as a Homepage Alert Post on the homepage of the appropriate website (LetsDoMN displays the corporate-related announcements, and the MN Field Trip Website displays the 4 other Alert types.) Alert announcements will be displayed until the next Alert is published, and they are always archived in each of the respective website blogs.
