VisitNC works with destinations across the state to coordinate trips for qualified journalists and influencers. Requests for assistance are considered on an individual basis with the level of support dependent on the proposed coverage and availability of resources, which can vary by season.
- For approved media trips, Visit North Carolina assists with transportation while destinations provide hospitality at the level they deem appropriate.
- Your coverage plan should include at least three destinations to qualify for assistance from Visit North Carolina. If you have a single destination in mind, we can suggest additional places that might interest you.
- Advance notice helps. We appreciate having at least four weeks to plan and coordinate.
- Journalists often travel with companions. Visit North Carolina’s transportation assistance and our hospitality requests to destinations cover only the journalist.
To begin the process, please fill out the Media Assistance Request with as much information as possible. If travel dates are to be determined, the month or even the season will suffice.
