16 hotels are offer enticing discounts from now through June 20

As part of its continued National Travel & Tourism Week promotions, Visit Milwaukee is thrilled to launch its Fest then Rest campaign that offers travelers and staycationers alike stellar deals at area hotels around popular festival dates. As part of the campaign, 16 hotels throughout the Greater Milwaukee area are offering discounts from 15 to 25 percent off the daily room night rate. Milwaukee is known around the country as the City of Festivals, and the Fest then Rest campaign lasting from April 5- June 20 is the perfect way for visitors to take in the music, food and cultural experiences Milwaukee’s diverse array of festivals offer. Festivals are also major drivers of tourism, with Summerfest alone generating over $160 million in economic impact for Milwaukee.
“Whether you’re considering attending Art 64 in Wauwatosa, PrideFest, Polish Fest, or Juneteenth, Milwaukee has a festival for you, and now we’ve also got a hotel deal that will make any visitor’s trip even easier,” says Visit Milwaukee Chief Marketing Officer Josh Albrecht. “We’re very grateful to our hotel partners who are offering these amazing deals and to our festival friends who continue to create experiences that keep visitors coming back to Milwaukee every year.” 
The Fest then Rest campaign will be supported by a comprehensive marketing and earned media campaign to drive awareness and adoption of these once-a-year deals. Visit Milwaukee is promoting Fest then Rest through paid search, digital advertising, and social media campaigns.
