Information for Tourism Partners
Welcome to our tourism partner hub! We greatly value all that local tourism-related businesses and nonprofits do for the Transylvania County tourism industry and consider them to be an important part of why we are such a popular destination. With that in mind, we have many ways that we promote these partners to our audience. Some, like posting on our calendar or having certain listings on our website are free. Others, like advertising space in our Adventure Guide & Waterfall Map or co-op ads in key publications, are available for a fee.
The first step for all tourism partners is to complete a Partner Profile form, which ensures that we have up-to-date information (contact info, quality images, your story) about your business or attraction. This is true for new partners and ones who have been here for decades. Details and a link to the form can be found below. Next, if you’re interested in our advertising opportunities for partners, take a look at the Partner Marketing Opportunities information below. Finally, please check out all of the complimentary offerings the TCTDA provides for our tourism partners. If you have any questions about any of this, please contact Virginia Watkins at email@example.com.
PARTNER PROFILE FORM
We spread the word about the many special businesses and attractions in Transylvania County in various ways throughout the year. To ensure that we have accurate and timely info to include you in some of these unpaid opportunities, we invite all local tourism partners to complete a Partner Profile Form, linked below. This form is vital for all tourism partners to fill out!
PARTNER MARKETING OPPORTUNITIES
We offer a range of marketing opportunities to our tourism partners. Learn more about how to take advantage of them in our 2024 Partner Marketing Program Booklet. To request an opportunity, please fill out the 2024 Tourism Partner Marketing Opportunity Request Form. Both items are linked below.
