Partner Program Overview

About Our Partnerships

Founded in October 2017, the Visit 29 Palms Tourism Business Improvement District was established under the Parking and Business Improvement Area Law of 1989 and was formed through a public-private partnership between the City of Twentynine Palms and its lodging businesses. Funded entirely by a self- assed 1.5% tourism tax charged at all hotels, motels, RV resort, and short-term vacation rentals within the city limits, Visit 29 Palms actively promotes tourism to Twentynine Palms throughout the year through a variety of marketing programs and initiatives, and also oversees the operations of the 29 Palms Visitor Center. All marketing activities including the development of the annual tourism marketing plan and budget are overseen by a 5-member advisory board, made up of owners and representatives from the city’s diverse lodging industry.

As Visit 29 Palms enters its fourth year of operation, a key initiative for the organization is to enhance the ways it works with hospitality focused businesses, and as a result has developed a brand-new partner program. The goal of this new program is to build meaningful partnerships and offer businesses the opportunities to align their goals and audiences with the Visit 29 Palms channels and opportunities.

While the current COVID-19 pandemic has changed travel and tourism as we know it, the Visit 29 Palms TBID organization strongly believes there is a bright future ahead for our city. With new businesses opening and the Project Phoenix downtown revitalization project underway, momentum is building, and we hope you will join us in this exciting time and help us continue to grow our tourism industry for the betterment of our community.

Whether you’re a tour guide, an attraction, a restaurant, hotel, or shop, by working in greater partnership with the Visit 29 Palms Tourism Business Improvement District you’ll be able to gain meaningful marketing support to help distribute your message beyond your own efforts, and introduce your products and services to a new audience.
