2021 CO-OPS.
We can all agree that 2020 was anything but normal, and as such we were not able to introduce our 2021 marketing Co-Ops during our annual Fall Conference. As we head into 2021, we are happy to release the much anticipated 2021 Co-Ops that are now available for all of our Wyoming partners. The Wyoming Office of Tourism team compiled feedback provided by the industry, along with additional surveys and research to develop recommendations for co-ops that raise the visibility of our partners at state investment levels within WOT's budget reductions. Added value to existing programs for 2021 include re-targeting with Bandwango in the Spring Multi-Channel, featured event options on and the consumer email. New opportunities include social media takeovers, virtual desk-side meetings with media and geo-location data sharing.

The Wyoming Office of Tourism is doing a full presentation January 20th, from 1-3pm, on co-op opportunities and how they fit into the integrated marketing strategy going forward. Put it on your calendar now and look for more information to follow in 2021. In the meantime, please contact Amy Larsen,, (307) 777-6706, with any questions you might have. Keep an eye out for O’Brien McCarty with Miles Partnership,, 303-867-8307 and Lesley Rowbal with Madden Media,, 308-249-2255 who will be contacting you directly about these opportunities.


china marketplace

On December 2nd, Jim Wollenburg, along with partners in Jackson and Yellowstone National Park, teamed up with the Wyoming Business Council to conduct a Wyoming Tourism and Industry marketplace with leaders in Wyoming’s sister state, Shaanxi Province in China. This marketplace resulted in more than 15 high level professionals and leaders from the Shaanxi province exchanging information and highlighting their respective areas with tourism and industry leaders in Wyoming.
