The Delta Bessborough, in cooperation with Saskatoon’s summer festivals and events, is launching a new website to assist festival and event goers with their summer travel plans.
Web surfers can head to www.bessfest.ca to take advantage of special guestroom pricing offers that are being made available at significantly reduced rates, in addition guests can link from this site to festival and event specific sites in order to find out more about what’s happening in Saskatoon this summer.
“The Delta Bessborough is central to all the festival and event locations” states Stefan Deprez, Director of Sales and Marketing at the Bessborough, “We have seen an increase over the past couple of years in the number of out of town guests making these events part of their summer getaways”. Due to the increased demand for these mini vacations, or “staycations” as they are often called, the Bessborough decided to help promote these events by offering attendees the opportunity to enhance their experience with an affordable overnight stay.
“We like to think that people will make 2011 their best festival ever by taking advantage of these specials offers” continues Deprez, “We’ve seen these offers grow in popularity alongside these events and we want to continue to see Saskatoon flourish as a destination”.
This initiative also offers numerous benefits for the festival community who can take advantage of the various marketing benefits of Delta Hotels corporate brand and the Bessborough’s allure as a destination unto itself.
