What you get when you advertise in the Visit package:
A mobile app for tablets and smartphones that contains information from Visit St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix magazine and is promoted on the USVIHTA website to tour operators and their clients as well as territory-wide through strategically placed QR codes on posters, 3×5 cards, in the airport in baggage claim, front desks and lobbies of hotels, restaurants, shops – anywhere there is high visitor traffic. This easily downloadable app provides everything a visitor needs to know while on vacation, it provides a Google map on how to get there, menus for restaurants, links to your website, and more. This is another platform for additional advertising exposure, and your advertising message will be displayed on this app by simply purchasing an ad of any size in the Visit program!
