Stone Communications works closely with your marketing department or agency to make sure we create a list of producing journalists and photographers to meet your objectives. From there, we coordinate everything from scheduling, transportation, invitations, escorting the tours and providing evaluation of coverage generated as a result of the media/press trip to your area.

We understand the value and needs of targeted publicity for the purpose of increasing visitation to a resort, destination or regional area. Our approach is to identify the client’s goals and objectives in order to target the perfect writer, photographer and media outlet to attend your media tour.

We will be happy to provide references from past media trips we have conducted.
