BibRave and Stay22 Help Races Drive New Revenue Via Participant Hotel Stays

November 4, 2021

BibRave will work with races to set up a location-based interactive map showcasing nearby lodging options

Portland, OR – BibRave, the leading-edge endurance and fitness marketing agency, and Stay22, whose mission is to empower all travelers to search and find accommodations that best fit their needs, recently partnered to help endurance events profit from nearby hotel and VRBO stays.

Each year, thousands of runners travel and book lodging for Marathons, Half Marathons, Triathlons, and other endurance-related events. Until recently, however, there was no easy way to earn commissions for referring participants to local hotels and VRBO rentals in one solution. But, with Stay22’s location-based interactive map, races can easily earn money by simply showcasing area lodging options. Races that have partner hotels can easily include and highlight those hotels on Stay22’s map.

And because Stay22 has partnerships with hotels and VRBO, races can earn on both hotel stays and vacation rental stays.

New features or technology can be intimidating, so Stay22 has tapped BibRave to make adding Stay22’s map to their race site as turn-key as possible. BibRave is also helping manage all partnerships, building the map with race-specific local hotels and points of interest, setting up the dashboard, on-boarding, payments, and more.

“In-person races and travel are newly back and we’re already seeing impressive numbers from Stay22 partnerships,” said Tim Murphy, Co-Founder of BibRave. “We host Stay22 maps on all race pages on BibRave.com, and our earliest race partners using Stay22 (some which are very small and in small markets) are earning money on area hotel and VRBO stays just by hosting a different map on their website and in their emails. BibRave will be there to make integrating this revenue-driving map completely foolproof.”

Races interested in hosting a Stay22 map on their site should contact Jenn@BibRave.com to get set up, and BibRave’s services are free of charge thanks to this exciting new partnership.
