Vantage Hotels and Casio ProTrek launch ‘National Park PLAYoffs’ Centennial promotion

(CLEVELAND, June 1, 2016)—Vantage Hotels and Casio ProTrek have partnered to celebrate the 100th birthday of the national parks in the new National Park PLAYoffs promotion. From now to June 30, travelers can share their favorite national park (or the one they’d most like to visit) in a bracket-style contest for a chance to win free hotel stays and other great prizes that are useful for anyone planning a road trip this summer.

“More than 300 million people will visit national parks this summer in conjunction with the Centennial,” said Steve Shaffer, media manager of Vantage Hotels. “So we’ve come up with a fun way to determine people’s favorite destinations. And with more than 1,000 properties, Vantage Hotels are affordable and conveniently located for anyone planning a national park trip this summer.”

While all national parks are superlative, the promotion is designed to get the word out and generate awareness of parks that may not be on travelers’ radars, such as Badlands National Park in South Dakota, Black Canyon of the Gunnison in Colorado, and Big Bend in Texas.

In addition to free Vantage hotel stays, participants can also win Casio ProTrek watches, America the Beautiful National Park Passes, and other road tripping essentials! All winners will be selected at random.
