Vote for Hilton Head Island!
2021 Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards Voting
Partner Promotion Toolkit
Last year, Hilton Head Island won Conde Nast Readers' Choice Award for "Best Island in the U.S." It's time to vote and win again, but we can't do it without our business partners help!
How does winning Best Island In the U.S. impact your business?
Accolades help us to become more than a regional household name; they help us become nationally recognized as a premier travel destination.
More national recognition increases exposure and visitors from across the U.S. and the world.
An increase in tourism results in more visits to our local businesses and increased revenue.
The economic impact of more visitors directly impacts our business health and quality of life: In 2020 the economic impact of tourism was $1.5 Billion
