Passing through Louisville? On your way to another destination? The CVB has developed a kit that can be used to promote future bookings to Louisville. The kit is chock-full of trivia, facts, fun videos, books and word search puzzles for your passengers to solve. In addition to friendly competition for Louisville-related prizes, your group will learn about all the possibilities the city has to offer.
Student T-shirt Promotion
Deck your group out in fine Louisville swag. Tees make for a great student souvenir of the trip and a great way to unify and ID your group. All your group has to do is stay at least one night in a Louisville accommodation of your choice and we will provide a personalized tshirt for all of your students.
