Visit Santa Barbara coordinates press trips for qualified travel media producing editorial coverage of the region. Hosting assistance may be available to staff travel writers and editors, freelance travel writers on assignment and travel-related TV crews and radio programs. Depending on the nature of your assignment, we may be able to assist with securing accommodations, consulting on itineraries, arranging interviews, setting up site visits and more.
Please note that hosting arrangements are provided at the discretion of Visit Santa Barbara member and partner businesses, and are subject to the availability and interest of each facility. Black-out periods exist and may necessitate a press rate, especially for hotel accommodations. It is much easier for us to accommodate you if you come mid-week or during a shoulder season.
Due to high demand, requests for press trip assistance must be received at least one month prior to your arrival date.
