WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (Mar. 29, 2018) – The award-winning Visitors Guide and Meeting Planners Guide by Discover The Palm Beaches (DTPB), the official tourism marketing organization for Palm Beach County, have been updated for 2018. Visitors can choose between ordering a free printed version of either by mail, or by downloading an electronic version online.
The new version of the Visitors Guide separates the destination into distinct regions: North, Central, South and Glades. It also offers more detailed city guides, compelling imagery and recommendations for things to do, as well as places to stay.
“Since the inception of our official Visitors Guide in 2016, nearly 100,000 have been distributed,” said Jorge Pesquera, president and CEO for DTPB. “We’re hoping this high-quality resource for potential visitors will continue to entice even more people to travel to our destination.”
The purpose of the guide is to put the destination at visitors’ fingertips, with access to an enhanced fold-out map that can be easily removed from the booklet, travel tips, local savings packages, up-to-date information and hyper-local recommendations. Some of the sections included in the Subject Directory are as follows: “Accommodations,” “Attractions,” “Beaches & Parks,” “Culture,” “Eco Attractions & Tours,” “Restaurants & Nightlife,” “Shopping,” “Sports” and “Wildlife Viewing.”

The new version of the Meeting Planners Guide highlights accessibility to the destination, convention districts, offsite venues and hotels with meeting space. The cover showcases an infographic filled with helpful, meetings-specific data, which planners will find useful.
“This newly-rebooted Meeting Planners Guide is an exceptional resource that highlights the destination attributes while addressing the practical needs of meeting planners,” explained Pesquera. “We crafted this comprehensive guide to inspire and persuade those who are interested in hosting events or conventions that The Palm Beaches are the best place to meet in Florida.”
DTPB once again partnered with Passport Publications & Media, the publisher for the print guidebook, to bring the two guides to fruition. Last year, DTPB won a Silver Award for “Best Visitor Publication” for the 2017 edition from the Florida Magazine Association in the 2017 Charlie Awards. The 2016 edition won a Silver Award for “Best New Magazine.”
