Tourism Business Improvement District

A Tourism Business Improvement District (TBID) is a collection of lodging properties that pay an assessment on individual room night stays.

Who contributes to TBID? Hotel and short-term rental management companies within the Red Lodge city limits pay in to TBID. For every room/short term rental sold per night,  a $2 tax (bed tax) is added to the guest’s fee, which is collected to funding the TBID.

How are the funds used? Bed tax funds are used strictly for destination marketing efforts such as event sponsorships, print and digital ads, brochures, and other projects that are focused on “putting heads in beds.”

TBID Event Grants

TBID has grants available for new and existing events. Events should be those that bring visitors to Red Lodge and “put heads in beds.” Applications should be submitted at least 90 days prior to your event. If you need more information, please contact TBID at [email protected].
