Co-op Advertising Programs
Travel- and tourism-related businesses can optimize advertising dollars by taking part in the Tourism Department’s cooperative advertising programs, available through a variety of media. Program options include magazine publications and a newspaper insert. Other options are also made available when possible. TravelOK encourages publishers to offer added value with these co-op programs, e.g., a web presence in addition to the ad space. Contact: Jennifer Mullins at 405-522-9550.
Bulk Brochure Orders/Warehouse
The Oklahoma Travel Guide, highway maps and other OTRD publications are available in bulk quantities for chambers of commerce, convention and visitors bureaus and other tourism-related organizations. Although there is no charge for brochures to these groups, we request every effort be made to pick up materials at the Oklahoma City distribution warehouse to save taxpayers the expense of freight and postage. Quantities of some brochures are limited and distributed at the Tourism Department’s discretion. Contact: Miki Galloway at 405-522-9539.
