Be a part of our Stamp a Passport Program...
The passport program is designed to draw visitors to Brown County during slower times of the year, to encourage spending and overnight stays, rewarding them with the chance to win prizes each time they spend money with merchants and businesses. The program is open to all businesses including but not limited to: Retail, Shops, Lodging, Dining, Entertainment, Breweries, and Wineries. Deadline to sign up is September 29, 2017.
The program will track spending in Brown County; each completed card reflects $500 in spending. Completed cards will be returned to designated locations and be eligible for weekly drawings of bundled gift certificates. One Grand Prize will be awarded per season - $500 in cash and an overnight stay in Brown County. An additional Gold Grand Prize will be awarded based on sponsor participation. Names and emails will be collected from the returned passports to create a data base for future programs and events and to contact the winners.
The Brown County Chamber of Commerce will launch an aggressive marketing campaign to promote the program including: Print ads, Press Releases, Facebook and Instagram posts, Chamber website, monthly emails, and rack card distribution to rest areas and all merchants.
The Chamber will be asking for the assistance of all merchants and businesses to encourage their neighbors to sign up for the program, the more participants, the greater amount of prizes and exposure. Promotional posters and rack cards will be distributed in September encouraging visitors to return for the holiday season. Logos and jpeg images of each of the programs will be emailed to all participating merchants so that each merchant can display them on their website, Facebook and Instagram pages.
