Mar. 9 – Visit Savannah launched new ‘Show Us Your Badge’ member-benefit program

March 9, 2015 - Visit Savannah has launched a new program called “Show Us Your Badge,” which highlights Chamber member businesses in Savannah that offer a discount to meeting and convention attendees during their stay, according to Joe Marinelli, Visit Savannah president.  

"The 'Show Us Your Badge' promotion aimed at helping Savannah Area Chamber members increase traffic to their businesses. 

“A program like this can really help them because many of our conventions tend to happen in the early part of the week when traffic is slower versus on the busy weekends," explained Kim Rodenberg, Visit Savannah destination services manager.

Participating businesses have a “Show Us Your Badge” sticker placed in their storefronts and are included on promotional materials that are distributed to meetings and conventions attendees.

Meeting and convention attendees are able to go to these stores and show their convention badge to receive the discount on the products they purchase. Discounts offered vary from $5 to 15 percent off a product, tour or service, and last for the calendar year.

"With more large conventions coming to Savannah, meeting planners are looking for promotions and perks like this for their attendees,” said Marinelli.  “We believe that if we can convert more convention-goers into shoppers and diners, we increase the likelihood of those folks making return visits in the future."
