Thank you for your interest in Virginia. Virginia Tourism Corporation (VTC) welcomes travel media to visit Virginia and often provides assistance with itineraries and/or expenses to report on the tourism assets and attractions throughout the Commonwealth. VTC offers signature familiarization (FAM) tours which highlight and promote Virginia’s trending themes as well as customizable trips according to your assignment.
Please review VTC’s Media Visit Travel Policy.
All interested media are required to fill out a Media Visit Request Form.
Itineraries are custom-built based on media’s interest and assignments. Examples of the type of itinerary that the VTC team can create for visiting media are below.
- Shenandoah Valley Family Adventure Road Trip
- Historic Triangle Journey
- Mountain Towns and Treasures of the Blue Ridge Parkway
- Pride Tour of Richmond
NOTE: As we are a state agency with a limited budget to work with each year, it is not always possible for us to provide a 100% fully-supported press trip. All financial support is determined on an individual basis. Due to a high volume of media visit requests, VTC will evaluate all submissions on a case-by-case basis and may be unable to accommodate all requests.
For questions or more information of media visits to Virginia, contact the VTC Communications Team.
