Visit Beloit Tourism Partner Benefits
Visit Beloit relies upon its partners to enhance the Greater Beloit visitor experience and, in return, provides a number of free partner benefits.
Because the organization is predominantly a non-membership destination marketing organization, partner benefits are available to qualifying tourism-related businesses in Beloit, WI, South Beloit, IL, and Rockton, IL without paying a membership fee. If you are outside of these areas, you can still partner with us for a small annual fee of $50.
In all cases, Visit Beloit reserves the right to determine eligibility for partnership and promotion.
The following free benefits are available to approved partners:
