Properties, Events & Deals

What is the benefit of posting your event, property, deal/package to the website?

Our goal is to attract visitors near and far to spend their vacation in Michigan. With the help from the industry, you can help us achieve this goal! Posting your unique, ordinary, like no other tourism-related property, event, deal/package on the website will give visitors the boost to visit and experience your area. This handout advises Community Resources for the Tourism Industry.

Is there a fee?

No. Posting your property, event, deal/package is absolutely FREE. So if you have more than one fun, cannot miss, amazing event—post them! If you own a few different properties that visitors must experience—post them! If you have more than one deal or package that is too good to be true—post them! There are no limits to posting, as long as each listing meets the guidelines. 

How do I submit my event, property, deal/package?

I’m glad you asked! If this is your first time submitting a listing, you will need to create a one-time, free account at extranet.michigan.org/login and click “Request a New Account”. Having the account will allow you to login anytime to make changes or updates to your postings. Once you are logged into your account, the left-hand navigation will guide you to each section you would like to review or make changes to. You can refer to our step-by-step instruction guide for all the “how to’s”.
