Information for Tourism Partners
ADVENTURE GUIDE ADVERTISING
The Adventure Guide, including the foldout Waterfall Map, is published in January and distributed to 90,000 interested travelers regionally, nationally, and internationally throughout the year. The Adventure Guide is a high-quality, multi-page, four-color, stapled booklet in a traditional rack size that provides an overview of Transylvania County — its natural assets, activities, adventures, shopping, dining, accommodations, and events. Advertising rates and sizes are made available in September of each year. If you are interested in advertising in the 2023 Adventure Guide, contact Virginia Watkins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to receive copies of the Adventure Guide to distribute from your place of business, please contact Rachel Cassell at email@example.com.

REGULAR EVENT CALENDAR
The events listed on our calendar on ExploreBrevard.com are submitted by community members. If you have a tourism-related event that you would like to promote, you must first create a user account. Once you have a user account, you may submit events that are subject to review and approval before they are posted live on our website.
If you would like to receive information about our annual co-op advertising program, please contact Virginia Watkins at email@example.com.
SWEEPSTAKES AND MEDIA FAMILIARIZATION (FAM) TOURS
Sweepstakes are designed to increase awareness and build visitation to our community during the shoulder season (December-March). The TCTDA regularly seeks contributions for accommodations, dinner or meals, activity passes, tours or tickets, or gift certificates valued at a minimum of $50. Please contact Virginia Watkins at firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your interest.
Media FAM tours occur when interested regional, national, and international media travel to our area to learn about and experience what makes Brevard and Transylvania County unique. As hosts for the media, we typically provide accommodations, meals, and gift certificates. If your tourism-related business is interested in providing the items mentioned above, please contact Virginia Watkins at email@example.com.

PUBLIC USE PHOTOS
The Transylvania County Tourism Development Authority directly owns or has licensed use of all images used in its promotion of Transylvania County unless otherwise stated. The TCTDA allows the use of certain photos by local tourism partners for the purposes of promoting tourism in Transylvania County. Low-resolution images can be found here. To receive a usable, high-resolution image, email Mollie Gordon at email@example.com indicating the image(s) you would like, the purpose, and the name of your organization.
The TCTDA may also grant non-commercial use of additional images based on the following parameters:
- Use is not commercial, meaning that it is either used by a nonprofit organization or for non-commercial purposes by a for-profit business. Examples of the latter would be photography in conjunction with editorial content or use within a slideshow not shared publicly.
- The photograph must not be in current regular use by the TCTDA.
- Only a limited number of photos may be provided (maximum of five). The intent is to complement existing photography, not supply a full suite of images.
- Permission is for the single-use as defined when granted and may not be used for additional purposes. Any desired future use must be communicated to the TCTDA as a new request.
- Any rights granted for photo use are non-transferable and not sublicensable.
- Photo credit of “Courtesy of Explore Brevard” must be included with any use.
If you have a request meeting these parameters, email Mollie Gordon indicating the image(s) you would like, the purpose, and the name of your organization.
Members of the media are encouraged to contact the TCTDA directly at (828) 884-8900 regarding any assistance, including photography. Ask for Executive Director Clark Lovelace or Marketing & Communications Specialist Mollie Gordon.
