About this event

What is Travel Media Meetup?

Pineapple Public Relations connects destinations with top tier media in a dynamic event that is a part-speed dating and part trade show. Get quality one-on-one time with the media to learn what they are looking for and also have time to pitch your story ideas. Pineapple Public Relations hosts two Travel Media Meetup events a year in conjunction with Southeast Tourism Society.

Cost: $995 for STS Members; $1,250 for non-members

Even if you’re working with a PR consultant/agency, this complements your efforts, yet saves the expense of researching the media and arranging deskside briefings.

What’s New for 2021?

We have designed a unique “The Great Southeast Road Trip” format that allows for more social distancing and have eliminated the group dining portion. Destinations will now be able to showcase their booths while simultaneously enjoying private one-on-one meetings with media. Media will rotate through display tables and will be given a “Road Map” to have destination partners check off as a stop along the way. The media representatives must have each “stop” checked off of their map in order to receive their gift bags which will ensures additional face-to-face time with each partner and media representative. During reception the time at the beginning of the event, passed hours d’oeuvres will be served and there will also be a final networking reception with both passed hours d’oeuvres and cocktails.

Registration Includes:

• Display area for networking

• Speed dating format – timed meetings with media rotating tables

• One attendee per destination

• Gift bag item participation

• Engagement with at least 12-15 journalists and influencers from the Carolinas

• Attending media contacts and information

For more information, contact Jennifer Nowicki at Pineapple Public Relations: 404-237-1761 x 1003.

We have had such success in key media markets – Washington D.C. (2018), Nashville (2017), Birmingham (2019, 2016 & 2014), Atlanta (2013, 2015 & 2018), Charlotte (2015), Jacksonville (2013) and more. Pineapple Public Relations is happy to connect you with Travel Media Meetup attendees who can further explain the benefits of participating.

Organizer of Travel Media Meetup - Carolinas

At Pineapple Public Relations, we specialize in hospitality, travel and tourism, and have successfully served this industry since 1996. A lot has changed since then, but one truth remains – selling travel and lifestyle is about communicating an experience. The great news is, that today there are more ways than ever to do this!

We are in this industry by choice, because it is our passion! We are experts in cultivating compelling content, in proactively identifying, telling and selling messages that resonate with today’s media and consumers. We tell travel stories that make national headlines, and have done so for over 15 years. Whether the approach is nature-based tourism, family-friendly, historic, outdoor recreation, or culinary inspired, experience and dedicated service is synonymous with our work.
