How Can One Ad Reach Two Vital Travel Markets?

With a limited advertising budget, which is the best travel market to attract?

• Albuquerque residents make multiple but shorter trips throughout Southern CO and NM, but

• out-of-state visitors spend more time and money in these regions.

With Around 505, you don’t have to compromise. Reach both markets with a single ad.

The travel supplement within the pages of our quarterly publication is overprinted and distributed to airport rental car agencies, state welcome centers and visitors bureaus.

This map-filled “mini-magazine” also includes travel-related features appropriate to the season. Atlas 505 is so popular with rental agencies, several have quit printing their own maps in lieu of the ones featured in our supplement.

“It’s so popular,” says one rental agency employee, “people that don’t even rent from us grab copies.” Welcome center employees even try to stockpile particular issues for year-round distribution.

Tourism department surveys show travelers often alter their trips based on information received after arriving in N.M. Some 40% even add extra days to their vacation based on the same information received once they’re in the state.

This section (pp. 15 – 38 in every issue) also reaches metro-area
residents who receive Around 505 magazine. And these readers have a track record of taking mini-vacations within the region, according to our reader survey.

Every Season:
Fall – foliage drives; a balloon fiesta schedule with exceptional distribution at the event;
Winter – what’s new at area ski resorts;
Spring – the annual tourism issue features fly fishing in the region; and
Summer – favorite golf courses in CO and NM.

Advertising packages available to meet every budget.
