What is your vision over the next five years?
Easy, have the best visitors guide in the state of Florida! But most of all, continue to drive visitation to The Palm Beaches. Our research shows nearly 50% of those who read our guide come for a visit — we’ll take it for now, but our goal is 100%.
What was one of the best guides you’ve published?
Last year, we redesigned the whole guide. Our opening section — with bold, panoramic images — from throughout The Palm Beaches was our best work. We wanted to make a statement right away, tell everyone who we are.
Tell us about the cover of the guide.
Our updated cover for the guide explains our tag line — The Original, The One, The Only. It has an iconic clock tower located on our most iconic streetscape, Worth Avenue on Palm Beach island. It’s historic, it shows the ocean, and it welcomes.
