The chain began its birthday festivities with 65 days of giveaways in February. Each day, clients were rewarded with gifts including Best Western Travel Cards and gift cards to Best Western’s retail partners.
The Best Western 65th Birthday celebration also coincides with the World’s Biggest Thank You, an annual event where Best Western hotels and sales staff travel around North America to thank local travel agencies, chambers of commerce, conventions and visitors’ bureaus, park service offices, government and military agencies, and local businesses, all of whom are instrumental in bringing business to Best Western hotels throughout the year.
