The Gulf County Tourist Development Council receives numerous requests from interested media and we are happy to work together to fulfill all requests. We encourage media to contact us at least two weeks prior to expected or requested travel dates, so that we may adequately prepare for a successful visit. If less than two weeks notice is given, we will attempt to assist you in every way we can; however, as we rely on our industry partners for media rates and special arrangements, we cannot guarantee that short-notice requests for assistance can be fully accommodated.
Journalists should provide a letter of assignment on official letterhead from the media outlet they are representing. If freelance journalists do not have a letter of assignment, they must provide three travel-related articles written within the last two years. Once credentials have been verified, we will begin coordinating arrangements with our area partners. The Gulf County TDC requests a copy of the original article or DVD of broadcast coverage of all travel articles, stories and/or blogs that are produced and mention Gulf County Florida.
Hospitality offers that are extended to media (i.e. accommodations, dining, attraction passes, etc.) are provided at the discretion of our industry partners and cannot be guaranteed for each visit. If media professionals cannot accept comps, a media rate may be available. All requests are subject to availability.
Gulf County is a family- and pet-friendly destination and while we want journalists to enjoy their stay, we may not be able to accommodate spouses, children or guests of the journalist in all cases. If you require special assistance for any reason, please alert the TDC Team as soon as possible so that proper arrangements can be made.
