Marketing your destination

Attracting more visitors to your destination requires an understanding of what makes your destination unique, and how these experiences, attractions and activities will attract the right people over and over again.

At dtb! Advertising we work with tourism organisations and regional councils to market their destinations through the creation of Official Visitor Guides that are distributed nationally and internationally to grow destination visitation and visitor yield.

We have proven experience across Queensland as the Official Advertising Sales Agency with Tourism Events Queensland for more than five years. We’ve also partnered with many regional and local tourism organisations, including Townsville Enterprise Limited, Murweh Shire Council, Cook Shire Council, Advance Rockhampton, Southern Queensland Country, Tourism Noosa, Visit Sunshine Coast, Brisbane Marketing, Ipswich City Council, Gold Coast Tourism, Scenic Rim, and Northern Territory.

A total publications solution which we’ve refined and practiced over the last 20 years is achieved through the following, which takes the hassle away from regional and local tourism organisations.


We take the time to fully immerse ourselves in destinations to understand must see attractions, adventures and experiences, adult and family activities, itineraries, where to stay, getting there, events and festivals, shopping, key areas / towns within the destination and more. Content is gathered from existing sources as well as fresh insights gained to appeal to visitors.

Advertising Sales

We understand the required sales revenue, to provide a cost neutral solution broken down by page numbers and ad sizes. We collaborate with tourism operators through the development and distribution of electronic advertising ‘Rate Cards’ and the necessary communication and follow up through our internal sales team.

Design and Layout

Strict adherence to brand/template guidelines, strategic themes and flight and drive routes will deliver a publication to promote the destination, have immediate and meaningful connections and optimise advertiser’s investment.


We ensure the key messages are captured within the brand personality to best appeal to the target audiences. We transform words into messages that inspire action.

Production of Publication

Competitive, quality costings are sourced from several suppliers to achieve the best revenue and production outcome right through to delivery and distribution.
