Greater Fort Lauderdale Restaurant Month

The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau (GFLCVB) is excited to announce that we are transforming our summer incentive programs, including Restaurant Month.

What’s new about Restaurant Month?
BIG NEWS! We’re extending the dates of Restaurant Month throughout August and September, which means more time to promote those special dining deals and draw more visitors to your location. 

There is no sign-up fee to participate. Yes, that means you can reap all the benefits of our strategic Restaurant Month marketing campaign without paying a dime out of your own budget. All we need is (2) $100 gift certificates from each participating restaurant. (Restaurants that have already made payment will be reimbursed).

What do you get from the GFLCVB if you participate in Restaurant Month?

  • Inclusion in comprehensive advertising campaign in newspapers, magazines, online and direct mail.
  • Public Relations campaign focused on generating high impact stories in major media outlets.
  • Targeted social media campaign.
  • Inclusion in consumer e-newsletter.
  • Link to your web page.
  • Did we mention that there’s no fee to participate!?

What does the GFLCVB need from participating restaurants?
We need your photos. Send us hi-res images of your restaurant, food and chef, so we can promote your brand on our website and channels, as well as the highly competitive advertising and public relations campaigns that we will be executing on your behalf. We just need (2) 100 gift certificates to confirm participation. 

Do you have to offer a certain price point on offers?
This year we are suggesting that you offer two deals: one $35 option and one $45 option.

Do you have to offer the dining deal every day of the week?
No. You dictate what your offer is and when you are making it available. However, we highly suggest that you create offers that are available Sunday through Friday, at a minimum. It’s even better for the visitor, if you offer a dining special on Saturday. 

Do I have to keep the offer open for a full two months? No, you are free to decide how long you want your offer to run. To encourage repeat visits, we recommend changing up your offer as an enticement to return. But it’s totally up to you!

Do you have to send the GFLCVB details about the special offer? 
No. This year, we will be linking to your site instead of publishing all the details on our own site. This means more web traffic for your brand and you maintain control over the offers themselves. However, we will be creating an article on our website detailing some of the great dining deals. So, if you’d like to be included in the editorial, please send us your menu.

What is the deadline to sign up?
July 1, 2019

Who do I talk to if I have additional questions?
Contact Kara Franker, our new Senior Vice President of Marketing & Communications for the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. She is excited to hear from you and to plan more strategic programs where we can partner together to promote our great destination!
