Destination Newport is the city of Newport’s all-volunteer designated marketing committee that meets monthly on the third Thursday at 2 p.m. at City Hall, unless otherwise noticed. The organization serves the interests of Newport’s tourism economy by marketing the city of Newport as an all-season visitor destination.
With this mission at the forefront of our planning process, the 2018-19 marketing plan defines strategies to attract new visitors while building high levels of loyalty and advocacy—thus increasing the number of returning visitors.
Destination Newport Vision
To promote the city by differentiating it from the competition and by marketing it as an all-season visitor destination.
As the lead marketing and promotional committee for visitation to Newport, Destination Newport is funded by the 9.5% Tourist Development Tax on short-term accommodations, commonly known as the “room tax.”
Destination Newport employs no full-time or part-time staff. Instead the all volunteer committee members contract with local partners and the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce to manage the marketing for Newport under the committee’s oversight. Destination Newport manages market research, planning, advertising, and public relations.
