Visit Pensacola and Showcase Pensacola Destination Marketing Efforts

Visit Pensacola took a dynamic marketing approach to opening the destination following the Covid-19 pandemic. In the first phase of reopening, Visit Pensacola switched from a Healthy Travel Updates page on its website to a While You Are Here page. The latter was a consumer approached message that while including destination reopening information, also included items such as lodging, beach safety and items more closely related to visitor experiences.

Following, the Cabin Fever marketing campaign ran in local markets to urge residents who wanted to get out and vacation. The campaign encouraged residents that didn’t feel comfortable traveling long distances to take advantage of the destination in their backyard.

As travel restrictions lightened, Visit Pensacola ran the Wide-Open Spaces campaign in drive markets. The campaign showcased beautiful wide-open beaches and informed travelers that they could enjoy a vacation while practicing safe social distancing that was just a short, safe drive away.
