Who is considered a partner of the Golden Isles CVB?
All businesses within the Golden Isles tourism industry are considered partners of the Convention & Visitors Bureau. The CVB is an organization that embraces and encourages partnerships with businesses and residents alike. The CVB offers four tiers of paid partnerships that provide our partners with marketing and referral benefits.

What are the benefits of participating in the Golden Isles Premium Partnership Program?
The mission of the Golden Isles CVB is to promote the Golden Isles — St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Jekyll Island, Little St. Simons Island and the port city of Brunswick — to become a nationally recognized resort destination and to advocate for the best quality visitor experience and to protect the economic sustainability of the community. The CVB not only markets the destination as a whole, but we approach our marketing and investments with a "Community First" perspective, reinvesting your partnership contributions back into our community.

What time of year can I sign up to become a Premium Partner?
We keep Premium Partnership opportunities open year-round. However, several of the benefits are tied to Visitor Guide advertising. In order to be included in the Visitor Guide grids or sign up for a Visitor Guide ad, orders must be in by October 1 of the prior year (for example, for a 2021 partnership, reservations must be made by October 1, 2020).
