About the Rhinelander Tourism Marketing Committee (RTMC)
What is the Rhinelander Tourism Marketing Committee?
The Rhinelander Tourism Marketing Committee (RTMC) consists of local officials and business owners that markets the Rhinelander Area as travel destination.
Membership includes city of Rhinelander officials, owners/managers of Rhinelander and town of Pelican lodging properties.
The RTMC works with partners throughout Rhinelander and Oneida County (lodging properties, attractions, etc.) to help promote tourism to the area.
The RTMC’s marketing efforts cover a wide array of outlets, from the Explore Rhinelander website and social media channels to seasonal contests.
How is the RTMC funded?
Money for the RTMC comes from a portion of the room tax collected by the city of Rhinelander and the town of Pelican.
What is a Room Tax Grant?
Room tax funds are received from the City of Rhinelander and the Town of Pelican, and are facilitated by the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce through the Rhinelander Tourism Marketing Committee (“RTMC”). RTMC allocates a percentage of its room tax revenue for the development or expansion of visitor attractions and amenities through a grant fund.
Funding is devoted to community groups and organizations that further the advertising and promotion of tourism in the Rhinelander area. RTMC will consider applications from non-profit groups and organizations that provide marketing and focus on bringing people to the Rhinelander area. RTMC will also consider applications from non-profit groups and organizations that offer activities or events that will encourage people to stay longer.
