MISSISSIPPI TOUR GUIDE
Thank you for the opportunity to submit this proposal to produce the 2025 Official Mississippi Tour Guide for the Mississippi Tourism Association. For easy access to our digital guides, please scroll down. We have also provided a downloadable copy of our full proposal.
SWEET HOME ALABAMA OFFICIAL VACATION GUIDE
We have proudly worked alongside the Alabama Tourism Department to produce their official guide for 30 years. Each year’s guide is crafted to work in harmony with the state’s marketing plan and brand standards. To provide added value, we offer remarketing from alabama.travel as well as lead generation from an online reader service program.
GULF SHORES & ORANGE BEACH OFFICIAL VACATION GUIDE
Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism turns to Compass Media (and has for 27 consecutive years) to write, photograph, design and publish their annual visitors guide. Our partnership extends beyond the print guide with multi-channel managed and paid social media, digital ad campaigns, and co-op and remarketing programs.
HUNTSVILLE: OFFICIAL DESTINATION GUIDE TO HUNTSVILLE/MADISON COUNTY
In a guide that delivers 100% editorial content, we weave the stories from a towering Saturn 5 rocket to the quirky Rocket City Trash Pandas baseball team. Long-time advertisers in our Alabama guide, Huntsville’s staff turned to us in 2019 to help them envision their first destination guide. We are currently working on their fifth guide.
VISIT RALEIGH OFFICIAL VISITORS GUIDE TO RALEIGH, CARY AND WAKE COUNTY
Raleigh invites visitors to “Jump In” for immersive experiences from the local art scene to culinary hot spots that are gaining national attention. Our relationship began with their 2016 guide, and we’re still going strong working on their 2024 guide. We work closely with the Visit Raleigh team to meet changing conditions with new approaches.
Thank you for the opportunity to provide this proposal. We would be honored to work with you to promote all that Mississippi has to offer with your upcoming tour guide and for many years to come.
If selected, Compass Media will work diligently to deliver a guide that exceeds your expectations in every way. We are ready to go to work and ready to answer any questions you may have.
President, Compass Media
