Hello Tourism Partners,

The holidays are already here, and here at the office we are keeping busy! The Indiana Office of Tourism Development had a successful November as our nine-week fall marketing campaign came to a successful close. The campaign was exclusively online, targeting Indiana residents and neighboring markets around the perimeter of the state. Year-over-year click through rates improved 6 percent on VisitIndiana.com/Fall, with almost a million impressions. Our 12 Days of Giveaways promotion generated 391,191 impressions and more than 31,189 engagements (that’s up from 113,204 and 6,197 in 2017). Thank you to all those partners who participated and donated prize packages!

The results are in are for 2018 Best of Indiana winners. Best Indiana State Parks and Recreation Area was Turkey Run State Park, Best Museums was The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis and Brew Burger in Jasper was named for its specialty burger.
