2019 Tourism Incentives and Opportunities

The Tourism Incentive Program was launched in 2015 with the goal of fostering partnerships within our tourism community, and expanding the reach of your marketing efforts.  We continue to focus on providing evolving opportunities for our partners and for our region.  In 2019 we will offer exciting new marketing and advertising opportunities that reach outside the city of Houston that we are confident you will find beneficial in helping you to achieve even greater goals.

Announcements will be made at the 2019 Houston Tourism Summit
April 25th at the George R. Brown Convention Center

2018 Tourism Incentive Program

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.
