Advertise in the Portland Visitor Guide

Back for the first time since 2020, Travel Portland’s 2024 printed Visitor Guide has been
redesigned with portability, sustainability and functionality in mind. Reaching an audience of nearly 600,000 potential travelers, our guide offers advertisers direct access to target customers ready to dine, shop, stay and sight-see in Portland and the Portland region. Distribution points for the guide include visitor centers, Portland International Airport (PDX) and digitally on the Travel Portland website.

Visitors are returning to Portland, and our new guide is designed to enhance and extend their stays, bringing even more economic enrichment to our community.

The visitor guide is published annually — ad sales for 2024 are now closed, but please check back in the fall of 2024 for ad sales openings for our 2025 edition. Information will be posted here when available.
