Cooperative Advertising & Marketing Opportunities

Each year, Experience Columbia SC produces a cooperative advertising plan for travel and tourism partners. Because we buy advertising in bulk, partners receive significant discounts on advertising rates through this program. The guide below includes opportunities for leisure advertising, and opportunities for meetings and convention advertising. Please note that the meetings and convention advertising is reserved for our DMF hotel partners. Please review the guide below and email McClelland Schilling, Marketing Associate, at if you would like to participate, or if you have any questions.
