The BC Lodging and Campgrounds Association offers the perfect opportunity for suppliers of goods and services to connect with over 400 potential clients in the lodging and campground industry.
Our accommodation members are constantly reminded to choose a Preferred Supplier first when shopping for goods and services. Suppliers apply for associate or corporate membership in the association and request the Association’s endorsement to provide our members with preferred pricing on their products or services.
A number of suppliers approach the Association with proposals to be the only endorsed provider of a product and/or service and these offers are approved or not by the board of directors based on their merit. These suppliers create a relationship with value that meets or exceeds the Partner Package.
There are three supplier advertising/promotion membership packages to choose from. Suppliers, as associate members in good standing, also have access to the financial benefits negotiated by the Association:
Associate Package – First year $500 +GST then $346.50 +GST and receive: An introduction e-mail to the member properties, a listing in the online Buyers Guide, a listing or product overview in the Monthly Supplier Update, the opportunity to introduce new products/services in the Product Spotlights section of the Monthly Supplier Update and more.
Corporate Package – Annual $871.50 +GST and includes Associate package benefits plus insert articles in one or more issues of the Supplier Update and have a flyer or catalogue posted in the Partner Bulletin member only area and registration of a table top display at the annual Ideas Forum.
