The 2022 Cooperative Plan was developed by the Tourism Division and its agency of record, Odney. The plan is designed to provide support to tourism partners that rely on travel and tourism. These vetted media placement options are part of the overall North Dakota Tourism plan or options that will allow partners to inspire a regional and state-wide audience by keeping travel to and within North Dakota top-of-mind. Additional PR and sport show partnerships may be available at a future date.
