Media Visit Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in traveling to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina!

The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB is available to assist journalists who are researching and developing media coverage for print, digital, broadcast and social outlets. We receive a large volume of media hosting requests year-round, and follow the policies outlined below to offer the best quality and level of assistance.

Our Process

Media hospitality is determined on an individual basis and is subject to availability. If you are traveling between September and May, we recommend you submit your request at least four weeks in advance to allow for review and potential hosting coordination. If you are traveling from June to August, we require requests at least six weeks in advance. Please note that opportunities for a hosted visit during the busy summer season are limited.

A representative from Fahlgren Mortine will work with the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB to review and evaluate each media request and advise you of our hosting availability. This response can take up to three weeks.

Our Policies

Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB has a limited budget for media visits. Except in special situations, media visits will be limited to one room for a maximum of four days (3 nights). Coverage of airfare, rental cars, ground transportation, meals and activities will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Our media hosting program is designed to host working media. Please understand that host hotels, attractions and restaurants are not always able to accommodate spouses, children, family, and friends accompanying working journalists. Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce/CVB does not offer full hosting support 18 months from the last hosting of a journalist or influencer.
