Visit Tampa Bay welcomes travel media and often provides assistance with itineraries and expense assistance so that writers can experience the destination in order to write about it. If you are interested in a Visit Tampa Bay Media Familiarization (FAM) Tour, please fill out the Media Assistance Request Form below. Every effort will be made to accommodate your date preferences; however it is not guaranteed.

Media assistance depends on availability and is handled on a case-by-case basis. Travel media must provide:

  • Completed Travel Media Assistance Request Form
  • A brief bio and samples of published stories.
  • Letter of assignment (if working for a specific publication).
  • Name of publications/outlets to which you plan to submit articles and their circulation numbers.
