The Public Relations department of the San Diego Tourism Authority offers a Travel Media Hosting Program for qualified travel media in pursuit of their feature stories and editorial coverage of the San Diego region. The Travel Media Hosting Program is available to staff travel writers and editors, freelance travel writers on assignment and members of travel-related TV and radio programs. It is also available to bloggers and content creators for unpaid opportunities. All paid opportunities should be sent to SDTAMedia@theshipyard.com with media kits and case studies. They will be in touch should there be an opportunity.
Depending on the nature of the assignment, the department can assist with accommodations, suggested itineraries, passes to attractions and more. Please note that all arrangements are provided through the discretion of San Diego Tourism Authority member businesses and are subject to the availability and interest of each facility. Black-out periods may be experienced during the year, which may necessitate a press rate, especially for hotel accommodations.
Please allow 4-6 weeks advance notice for media hosting and itinerary assistance.
