What are the benefits of participating in the Golden Isles 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 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, commitments must be made by August 1 of the prior year (for example, for a 2024 partnership, your application must be completed by August 1, 2023).
