US Virgin Islands Hotel & Tourism Association

Mélange Travel & Lifestyle Magazine is offering USVIHTA members the opportunity to advertise your business for free in its four magazine issues for 2018. Located in Vancouver, Canada, this generous offer comes from the Caribbean Tourism Marketing Agency and its digital magazine Mélange Travel & Lifestyle Magazine. The company exists to promote the Caribbean region as the ideal place to vacation, highlighting the authentic Caribbean through its culture, food, fashion, art, people, travel stories and more, providing readers an all-encompassing view of the region. The magazine, read globally, is published four times per year in January, April, July and October.

During 2018, in each of the four issues, 16 pages will be dedicated to each of the islands which were severely affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. As businesses re-open to the public and as services become available again, Mélange would like to be one of the avenues through which our members can announce they are open for business.

In each issue, Mélange can accommodate 32 half page ads on a first come first serve basis. The half page ad size is: 1/2 page horizontal at 8.25” x 5.375” or 1/2 page vertical at 4.125” x 10.75”. The file format must be jpg, pdf or eps, and can be up to 5 MB in size.

Mélange can also just mention your business and provide a live link to your website, or provide your business’s contact information. In addition to Mélange’s four issues, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram will also be utilized to spread the word.

Members can send an email to Debbie Austin at with the words “Open for Business” in the subject line. Please attach your advertisement or a photograph with the related business information.
