2010-2011 Print Ad

We are proud to unveil our new print ad for 2010-2011, which will be seen this fiscal year in the Santa Barbara Destination Guide, Westways (September), California State Visitor Guide, the Central Coast Visitor Guide and three issues of Sunset Magazine (November, December, February).

The design of this ad brings together all the components that make Santa Maria such a wonderful place to live, work and visit!

As with all our ads, this one is full color featuring local barbecuer extraordinaire Billy Ruiz, the Museum of Flight (featuring Malei and Easton Weir), a Ballet Folklorico shot by Luis Escobar of Reflections Photography and a shot of Pinot Noir wine grapes hanging on the vine.

The call to action invites visitors to Taste the flavors of Santa Maria Valley: barbecue, strawberries, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; Enjoy all there is to see and do here, including live theatre, exciting museums, abund

ant golf (and lodging to suit every budget and taste); and Explore wide open beaches, wine country back roads, and the natural wonders of the dunes preserve.

When visitors call the toll-free number or request a free visitors package online, they will receive our full color visitor magazine, souvenir booklets featuring barbecue and wine, and more!

Our Chamber members receive exposure to potential clients/visitors every time someone sees our ad and requests information or visits our website.  Please check your listing to be sure all the information is current and correct.  This is critical in gaining you as many potential new clients as possible, and in offering our potential visitors the best information on what there is to see and do here.
