OSW Pavilion at London Wine & Food Show
OSW is coordinating a pavilion for the London Wine & Food Show, happening January 19-21, 2017 at the Western Fair District. Each participating partner will have their own booth space to promote their products and brand. By going in as a group, you are able participate at a reduced cost and utilize matching partnership funds that you would not have access to going into the show individually.
The cost of a 10′ x 10′ booth space would be $780 compared to $950 if you were to go in on your own.
Partner Offers Program
Ontario’s Southwest (OSW) invites you to participate in our upcoming Beer, Wine & Culinary (BWC) and Waterfront Campaigns for 2016. Offers will be published on OntariosSouthwest.com and traffic will be pushed to these offers with multi-channel digital campaigns. The target markets for these campaigns are nearby US States, Michigan, Ohio, and Western New York, the GTA, and Southern Ontario markets outside of Ontario’s Southwest. The BWC campaign will be in market year-round beginning in mid-May and the Waterfront campaign will be in market from June to September of this year.
How You Can Participate
An integral part of the campaign is the call-to-action to the consumer in the form of tourism product offers that will be promoted on OntariosSouthwest.com and linked to the operator’s website for fulfillment. We are looking for you, the tourism operator, to supply these offers and deals for inclusion in this campaign. We encourage you to participate, at no cost to you, and to leverage this investment to help drive traffic to your business. Each industry partner will be permitted to submit up to 5 unique offers for inclusion in the campaign.

It is very user friendly and prompts you for all required information.

Each package must be accompanied by a single image that reflects the consumer experience (minimum 1920 x 800 pixels, maximum 4 MB).
