2019 TSO GUIDE NEWS & OPPORTUNITIES
2019 TSO GUIDE
Share Your Business With Visitors
 
Our colleagues at Oregon Media Group are beginning outreach to all regional partners to secure space in the 2019 TSO Vacation Guide. Several new things make this one of the premier spaces to reach potential visitors to Southern Oregon:
 
* Earlier Publication - May 2019
* 10 new pages added to Wine Section
 
And, perhaps most importantly, we will have special dedicated rack space at the new Siskiyou Welcome Center on I-5 north at mile 12 when it opens this spring. Precise traffic counts aren't known, but every car entering Oregon from California will have the chance to stop at this newest addition to our Oregon State Welcome Centers.
 
Best rates for this advertising opportunity are only available to TSO members. To learn more, download your Media Kit at link below today.

TSO PARTNER PHOTO ARCHIVE
TSO is pleased to share with our regional tourism partners our initial photo archive! This password-protected resource is available for our partners to help you create promotional materials that help drive visitors to Southern Oregon. We will add to this archive with every photoshoot that we do. Visitors to the archive will note the absence of some parts of our region---particularly the Southern Oregon Outback --but we will fill this out over the next year with more and more original, rights-free imagery for our regional tourism partners to use. Please let us know if you see any imagery in the archive that is being incorrectly shared from our old photo archive, and we will address any issues immediately.
 
We wish you all Happy Creative Development as we all work together to promote Southern Oregon.
