Last week, the Visit Savannah team members spent several days pitching new and classic stories about Savannah and Tybee Island to editors of major publications based in New York City. Visit Savannah President Joseph Marinelli, VP of Communications and Marketing Angela Westerfield, Director of Public Relations Erica Backus, and Communications Manager Tanvi Chauhan, met with editors and various top-tier freelance journalists from publications including Travel + Leisure, Fodors, Passport Magazine, Vogue, Buzzfeed, HuffPost, and Travel Pulse, among others. The team shared latest news on Savannah’s hotels, including the highly anticipated Hotel Bardo. The team asked editors and writers about 2024 travel trends and topics of interest to their readers. The team will use this information to help craft media pitches for 2024 and beyond.
Visit Savannah aims to build valuable relationships with publishers and writers to showcase our city’s unique history, the many local businesses, and the new state-of-the-art entertainment districts expanding to enrich the traveler’s experience.
