The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau (PMVB) reminds businesses and organizations that time is running out to secure a discount in the 2022-2023 edition of “Pocono Mountains Magazine.” The official travel guide featuring Wayne, Pike, Monroe and Carbon counties is progressing for mass distribution this spring.
The Early Bird Advertising Rate is being offered with a 25% savings if payment is made by February 25, 2022. Ad placement will be on first come, first served basis with prepayment.
“This discount makes the travel guide an affordable way for local businesses that appeal to tourists to market themselves for an entire year,” said Chris Barrett, President/CEO of the Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau. “Nearly 30 million people visit the Pocono Mountains annually, and the travel guide is a valuable resource to help guests navigate the region’s 2,400 square miles.”
The travel guide offers different levels of exposure and advertising, with priority given to members of the PMVB. A free listing is provided to every PMVB member that submits a form by deadline as well as any property that pays the hotel tax within the four counties of Wayne, Pike, Monroe and Carbon. Enhanced listings are also offered at a low cost that include additional content such as a website description and image.

The PMVB also runs broadcast spots in major markets to promote the travel guide throughout the year.
