Partner Portal Guidelines
Last Updated: 19 October 2021
The Partner Portal is the hub for the Wyoming Office of Tourism’s efforts in providing information on all the great things there are to see and do here in Wyoming. Thousands of potential travelers – and customers – visit TravelWyoming.com or call our office looking for information every month.
This free marketing tool provides a platform for Wyoming businesses offering tourism-related services to reach a national audience. It is the responsibility of the account owner to keep the information updated and accurate. Our office will NOT be held responsible for outdated listings or events and we will NOT make changes on behalf of a business that neglects to utilize the system correctly.
Please note that the Partner Portal serves as the Office of Tourism’s primary tool for determining events and activities to promote within our strategy. In other words, if you aren’t listed, you are missing out!
TravelWyoming.com Listing, Deals & Events Guidelines
The following guidelines will help you determine if your listing qualifies for a TravelWyoming.com Listing, Deals & Events Partner Portal.
These guidelines were developed based on user research to determine the type of information visitors expect to find on our site and in our publications. Please keep in mind that our goal is to provide information for visitors on fun and exciting things to see and do while traveling in Wyoming. We ask the question, “Is this an event/listing a traveler would plan their vacation around/with?” If not, and if posted, we pose the risk of becoming irrelevant to our audience.
Approval/rejection of all submissions is at the sole discretion of the Wyoming Office of Tourism, which reserves the right to edit or refuse any listing. Some listings may be approved by correcting your submission following the instructions provided. Those re-submitted without corrections may be deactivated from the system. All listings, deals, and events require a photo, detailed description, and physical business address to be approved by the Wyoming Office of Tourism.
By posting content and photos to a listing on our website, you are confirming that all assets, both written and visual, are your property and that you/the business have the rights to all information on the listing. You are also allowing WOT to use the information/photos for marketing purposes beyond a listing.
Partners choose 1 primary category and, up to, 3 subcategories for your business. These categories determine how your listing will be displayed throughout the site. Please note that your categories will be reviewed for accuracy by WOT.
Please remember that these are general guidelines. Contact us directly with any questions or concerns, and we will happily provide additional help. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
