Listings and Photography Guidelines

Who gets listed in JCVB publications and on the website?

Any collector of the occupancy tax with at least five units and any attraction (a business that provides an activity for our visitors that enhances their experience in the destination) that is open year round, or a business involved with local tourism in Johnston County that as been approved by the Johnston County Visitors Bureau. 

The following categories are inventoried on an annual basis to be listed in our print publications and online. Each publication has a set of criteria which is set by the staff. To keep to the trend of storytelling, efforts are underway to showcase our tourism partners through features and not a "phone book" of listings. The bureau website is the comprehensive site for all partner listings and through the JoCo Hospitality Association, featured listings, and web advertising opportunities exist.
