Subject: Publicizing Baltimore in Garden & Guns
Hello Mr. DiBenedetto,
My PR firm has partnered with Baltimore.org to increase tourism in Baltimore from Southern states. We propose to publish an article in your magazine, Garden & Guns, in the Travel section. The article serves as a quick guide for tourists wanting to visit our city. The content includes categories such as where to stay, popular restaurants, where to shop and most importantly, what to see. I have selected the most popular and well-reviewed options for each section.
Baltimore is a beautiful city with unique neighborhoods that one must visit. The current riots and other factors might have increased the negativity towards the city but we want people to know that our friendliness is still strong. When it comes to travelling, Charm City has always succeeded to place its name on famous magazines and websites (Trade show News Network, Fodor’s, Travel + Leisure, and CNN to name a few.) In 2015, Baltimore welcomed a record 25.2 million domestic visitors and realized a 2.5% boom in hospitality and tourism-supported employment to reach 84,438 jobs. We are hoping for the numbers to increase this year.
Last year, most of our visitors were from New York, New Jersey, Virginia and Pennsylvania. Visitors from other Southern States rounded up to only 10%. Baltimore being renowned for diversity awaits for more visitors from these states.
Please review the attached article and feel free to provide feedback. We were hoping for the article to be published before the summer season so people have abundant time to plan.
