Marketing with OCVA
The Oregon Coast Visitor Association’s (OCVA’s) website garners over 1 million unique visitor views annually. The annual Inspiration Guide, which is published in the spring, is available virtually on our website as well as in hard copy. The magazine can be ordered for free by visitors, and can be picked up at Oregon Welcome Centers, visitor centers, hotel lobbies and various other locations within Oregon and beyond. We offer advertising co-ops, premium placement on enhanced featured listings, and advertorial opportunities for our partners.
The Oregon Coast Visitors Association regularly adds images to our regional stock image library. Images are available for partners to use in marketing the Oregon Coast as a destination.

Business & Events Listings
Interested in listing your business, event or destination on the OCVA website? OCVA does not create these listings directly but rather pulls all listings from Travel Oregon’s Oregon Tourism Information System (OTIS). Local destination management organizations (DMO) or chambers of commerce may create an account with OTIS. Contact your local DMO about getting your listing into the OTIS system or updating an existing listing.
If you are hosting a public event that you’d like visitors to know about, tag @thepeoplescoast on social media or send us your post in a direct message. We’re active on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter and may be able to reshare your event post there.
If your event is for tourism industry professionals, share your LinkedIn post with us. We may be able to reshare it to OCVA’s industry audience.
