Austin, TX - BedandBreakfast.com, the largest online B&B directory and reservation network worldwide, partnered with Wheel of Fortune to present the first ever B&B Week, slated to air January 7-11, 2008. The most successful syndicated program in the country, with more than 47 million viewers per week, Wheel of Fortune will offer nightly "wheel prizes" from BedandBreakfast.com members worldwide throughout B&B Week, January 7-11, 2008.
"When BedandBreakfast.com approached us to create a B&B Week, we jumped at the chance," said Sid Williams of Promotional Consideration, Inc, the exclusive prize provider to Wheel of Fortune and other game shows. "We know that our viewers love B&Bs for their distinctive qualities and warm hospitality, so working with BedandBreakfast.com on providing a week of prizes gave us the opportunity to create the first ever B&B Week," explained Williams.
BedandBreakfast.com worked with six B&Bs to provide prizes for B&B Week, including airfare, ground transportation and seven-day, six-night stays for two at Bamboo Orchid Cottage in Volcano, Hawaii; Old Doctor's House in Markt Einersheim, Germany; Suites Piazza del Popolo in Rome, Italy; Auberge McGee's Inn in Ottawa, Canada, and LimeRock Inn in Rockland, Maine.

Each night a B&B prize from a BedandBreakfast.com member inn will be featured on the wheel along with transportation provided by BedandBreakfast.com.
