January Marketing Meeting
Please join us on Wednesday, January 15 at 11am at the Hotel Viking for our first marketing meeting of the new decade as national speaker and Google expert Bryan Caplan returns to present:

Learn best practices and analyze trends about how customers engage with your business online, then turn these insights into well-informed, actionable decisions.
In this session, Bryan will discuss:
  • Identifying business goals and how to use your online presence to achieve them
  • Incorporating data into your marketing plan
  • Selecting tools to help you find the answers you need

The Hotel Viking is located at 1 Bellevue Avenue in Newport. Parking is available on local streets around the hotel or via valet. 
Newport Wellness Week:

We simply ask health and wellness businesses submit a special offer, added value/amenity, deal or discount for the week to entice people to experience their services, classes or offerings.

Newport Burger Bender
Our destination’s “best burger” contest is open to restaurants throughout Newport and Bristol Counties and will be back for its fourth edition February 14 – 23, 2020, coinciding with the Newport Winter Festival. While the tenets of the Burger Bender you know and love remain the same, we do have some changes this year, including permitting restaurants to submit two burgers if they choose: one beef-based burger and one plant-based or non-beef burger (veggie/vegan, turkey, lamb, seafood, etc.). For more details and to register in advance of the Jan. 24 th registration deadline, click here
