Yes. The New Hampshire Joint Promotional Program (JPP) provides assistance to tourist promotion organizations to encourage the development of quality out-of-state and in-state promotion projects.

The primary goals of the program are to assist in the development of New Hampshire as a year-round vacation destination, increase the length of stay, and to raise the level of quality of the projects done by local, regional and statewide organizations in order to maintain a strong economic base in the state.

Yes, with approval from the Division of Travel and Tourism Development.

What is eligible to be listed in the Calendar of Events on www.visitnh.gov?

How do I get my brochure in the Welcome Information Centers?

The Welcome Center Information Brochure Distribution Program will be evolving over the next several months. The Division of Travel and Tourism Development (DTTD) is taking steps to provide brochure distribution opportunities for the entire New Hampshire tourism industry at the State Department of Transportation Welcome Information Centers. A standardized racking system and efficient distribution through a contractor solicitation will be provided, thus being able to accommodate more varieties of brochures and alleviating some of the current delivery challenges. Those interested in distributing tourism literature at the Welcome Information Centers shall complete an application found at www.visitnh.gov under the Industry Members section and return it to the address by the deadlines listed, along with samples of the publication. DTTD staff will evaluate each request, and where applicable, a written approval will be returned, along with a list of Welcome Information Centers for which the applicant shall be approved. Applicants that are denied shall receive an explanation letter and a copy of the policy with the reason for denial outlined. A list of alternative literature distribution companies shall also be included.
