Partner Co-Op Advertising Campaign

Choose Chicago is proud to offer a new partner co-op advertising campaign as the city fully reopens and we welcome back visitors to experience Chicago and your businesses. Our focus is targeting travelers with a high intent to visit our city and now our partners can connect their brands directly to these audiences. Partner ads will be equitably distributed across targeted websites to deliver direct traffic to your website with data tracking capability and post-campaign performance reports.

This two-month co-op advertising campaign offers two levels of participation*:

  • Chicagoland region with a performance projection of 365,500 ad impressions
    • $3,500 per partner
  • Midwest drive market (Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan) with a performance projection of 657,900 ad impressions
    • $5,500 per partner

Register by Wednesday, June 30 for an August launch and utilize the power of co-op media purchasing to amplify your brand and drive direct traffic to your website.


*This co-op opportunity must have 30 partners participate to launch and deliver on performance projections.
