Experience Across All Aspects of Travel Marketing

The travel category is vast and diverse, and Advance Media NY boasts extensive experience across the industry, adeptly handling each partner’s unique challenges.  Different segments demand tailored approaches.

Your mission is to draw visitors to an area. Advance Media New York’s travel marketing team has marketing solutions that will highlight your community as a whole. We work with you to identify the different experiences you offer and the people most likely to enjoy those experiences. Because you draw a wide scope of visitors, your travel marketing campaign may include general awareness to key feeder markets, as well as segmented campaigns based on your strategic plan. We have several solutions that we can target geographically, demographically and behaviorally.

Attraction marketing is customized based on the allure of your attraction. Are you a destination attraction or an attraction often enjoyed once a visitor arrives to your area?  Some travelers build attractions into their trip itinerary, others choose what to do when they reach a destination.  Understanding these nuances, telling your attractions unique story and  uncovering your best potential audiences allow us to build a custom strategy designed to make your destination an option regardless of how travelers structure their trip.

Do you manage vacation properties, a resort or hotel? Let us help you reach your maximum occupancy with a travel marketing campaign built to maintain your high season and grow your low season. Your travel marketing campaign should be two-fold: you need to market your own property as a destination in itself, as well as include surrounding attractions as part of the draw. Use engaging, targeted advertising as a way to convince visitors to choose your property when they are ready to book and use story-telling methods to lure them to the area year-round.

Advance Media NY has expanded our borders, bringing strategic travel marketing skills to New York State and beyond.

Yates County

Project Overview

Yates County is located in the heart of the Finger Lakes region and is home to sparkling waterfronts, breathtaking scenery & world-class wineries. We had the pleasure of working with The Yates County Chamber of Commerce on multiple video projects over the last few years.

We captured footage at a variety of area attractions, local businesses and historical sights. We produced a general long-form video, a long-form video highlighting the local food scene, the Keuka Lake Wine Trail, as well as shorter versions to promote traveling to the county.

  • AMNY Creative won a Silver Award for the longform General Tourism video from 2021 Davey Awards

  • AMNY Creative also won a Platinum International Award for the Local Food Scene longform video in the 28th Annual dotComm Awards

Fulton County

Project Overview

Fulton County or the ‘Foothills of the Adirondacks’ are known for their 44 lakes and 74,832 acres of wild forest while also featuring rich, inviting history and a wealth of culture and the arts.

We had the opportunity to work with the Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce, visiting the county during each season to capture the tourism opportunities and promote the area as a four-season destination. Longer form videos paired with shorter spots to be used in marketing helped bring greater awareness to such a beautiful area and what it has to offer.



The AMNY Creative team is professional and easy going. I am very proud to show our new video to capture the summer season in Fulton County. Looking forward to next time! Thank you to their team for the opportunity and for producing a really sharp video.
