Putting You in the Consumer's Hands
While everything seems to be going digital, there is no replacement for a marketing piece that lands in the consumer's hands. In fact, more than half of all travelers still use some form of printed material while planning their trips.
Every potential traveler is a potential piece of business. That's why we continue to print a variety of marketing materials to showcase our members. Here are some of the ways we are putting our members into the hands of potential visitors:
Visitors Guides Distributed
All of our members receive a listing in the annual Valley Forge & Montgomery County, PA Visitors Guide. More than 200,000 copies of the Visitors Guide are distributed across the United States and Canada.
Copies of Every Montco Explorer Newspaper
The Montco Explorer is an exciting new piece that we introduced in 2015. Made to look and feel like a newspaper, more than 20,000 copies of each issue are distributed around the region. You can find them in coffee shops, restaurants, doctor's offices, and SEPTA stations. Without the limits of a traditional visitors guide, the Montco Explorer allows us to present our members through creative storytelling.
Dining Guides Distributed SemiAnnually
Member restaurants get a free listing in our Valley Forge Dining Guide, which returns in a new format for Summer 2016. The Dining Guide is distributed to all incoming meetings, conventions and groups as part of their welcome pacakges. The guide is updated twice per year to ensure current members are represented.
Tour Operators Receive the Tour Guide Newsletter
The Tour Guide is our new quarterly publication for the Group Tour market. The four-page newsletter, which features articles about members and our region, is mailed directly to more than 2,500 tour operators throughout the United States and Canada.
