Press Trip AssistanceTOURISM Santa Fe organizes three group press trips annually, designed to give journalists the first-hand experience necessary to make a story stand out. These four-night trips take place in fall, winter/ski season and spring. The trips are ideal for a first time media visit or for the writer who has not been to Santa Fe in several years. Individual press trip assistance is offered year round and allows for a more customized itinerary with flexible scheduling options.
If you are a journalist with a confirmed assignment, the TOURISM Santa Fe Communications Team is available to facilitate your visit. Our team can offer a wide range of support services, from supplying local contacts and recommendations on what to experience to coordinating hour-by-hour itineraries. We look forward to assisting you in telling the Santa Fe story.
TOURISM Santa Fe is always willing to support staff and freelance writers, TV, film and radio crews or other journalists working on travel-related stories about Santa Fe. We are also happy to assist social media influencers or bloggers with press trips to the city; taking a similar approach to hosting as we would with traditional media. However, it is important to note, our policy is that we do not pay any partnership fees and have a limited budget to assist with transportation/flight to the city.
The first step in our process is for you to complete our media assessment form so that we can assess your needs and determine the level of support that TOURISM Santa Fe can offer. Please complete the online form found here: www.santafe.org/media-assessment.
Please note that we give priority to writers on assignment and would like to see a written assignment letter from your outlets detailing the scope of your Santa Fe coverage.
Keep in mind that hotel availability is dependent upon the time of year, and it is at the discretion of our hotel partners. Requests for lodging assistance during the city's busiest season, typically June through October, may result in a media rate offer. The more advance notice of your media visit the better.
