Dear Hotel Professionals,
A recent travel industry report indicates that quick weekend getaways are becoming increasingly more appealing to Americans. According to TIA's U.S. Domestic Leisure Travel Report, 225 million such trips were taken last year; an increase of more than 10 percent in just five years.
MANCHESTER DESIGNER OUTLETS seeks to establish strong hospitality relationships and programs that work to capture a greater part of the visitor market. Through visitor advantage programs such as Club Manchester we can work with your organization to encourage visitors to choose Vermont as their stay and shop travel destination.
A quote from the above mentioned report also mentions that "Weekend travelers spend more money, have higher incomes and participate in a greater number of activities".
Shopping has been identified as the third most popular activity for these weekend trips, with eating out as number one followed by entertainment, shopping and sightseeing. At MDO our goal through print, billboard and Internet marketing is to provide a base on which to build meaningful "Stay & Shop" programs with interested hospitality partners.
We welcome your thoughts and ideas about working together to creatively make this an exciting and dynamic business-building opportunity for all of us.
Please call or e-mail for further information.
Director of Marketing
