We are happy to assist travel media with suggested itineraries and to facilitate visits to cultural attractions, resorts, museums, restaurants and other points of interest for articles, books and broadcasts. Depending on the nature of your assignment, LHVB can assist with accommodations, passes to attractions, media hosts, escorts and more.
Please allow three weeks advance notice for media hosting and itinerary assistance. If you are unable to meet the three-week notification, we will try our best to accommodate you. In addition, we request that you send two samples of travel-related articles or coverage published in the past 12 months.
Please note that complimentary arrangements are provided at the discretion of the host business and are subject to availability. Black-out periods can occur that may necessitate a press rate, particularly at hotels.
Journalists on individual media tours are responsible for their own transportation to, from and around the Laurel Highlands.
In addition, please understand that our primary concern is assisting working media and host locations are not always able to accommodate accompanying spouses, children and friends. When space permits, travel writers may bring a guest on media tours. However, that guest may be responsible for the cost of his or her own meals and admission fees. Individuals under the age of 18 may not participate in media tours.
Thank you for interest in the Laurel Highlands! We look forward to working with you as you plan your visit.
