Media Relations

Another way to promote Newport News and its tourism industry is through media relations. By utilizing media outlets, a city's attractions are promoted to a local, regional and national audience. Local awareness of the role of a tourism office is increased. Some of the ways NNTDO and NNVC are able to do this include:

  • Create and distribute media releases locally, regionally and nationally for Newport News and regional partnerships like 100 Miles of Lights, etc.
  • Assist the Virginia Film Office with requests for motion picture/film commercial locations.
  • Organize familiarization tours for travel writers.
  • Newport News Channel broadcasts.
  • Submit listings for Newport News to be featured in numerous publications including, The Virginia Travel Guide, Group Planner and Meeting Planner, AAA Mid-Atlantic Tour Books, and other City and Regional Visitor Guides, etc.
  • Provide editorial for magazines and publications that feature Newport News.
  • Provide Calendar of Event information to publications locally, regionally and nationally.
  • Provide information about tourism through a semi-annual newsletter
