2019 Tourism Incentive Program (TIP)

The Tourism Incentive Program was launched in 2015 with the goal of fostering partnerships and expanding the reach of marketing efforts. As TIP evolves, we continue to focus on providing opportunities for our partners and for our region. With that in mind, 2019 promises to incorporate new opportunities that we are confident will be exciting and beneficial. 

Announcements are coming very soon - stay tuned!


2018 Tourism Incentive Program

Houston Tourism Incentive Program 2018

Houston First Corporation (HFC) and Visit Houston are proud to announce that we are investing funds in tourism-related marketing programs developed by local and regional organizations for the 3rd consecutive year. The Tourism Incentive Program encourages industry partnerships across the Houston area to create tourist packages. These packages feature activities and events across the region and are marketed to audiences 90 miles and beyond Houston.

This year, HFC awarded $275,000 to 21 TIP applicants representing a variety of events, projects and programs.  These organizations worked collaboratively with other partners, including a hotel and a non-profit, to create tourism packages that are being marketed to potential visitors outside the region. Click here for the full list of 2018 winners and package descriptions.

Best of luck to all our 2018 TIP Award Winners!
