Safe Haven: A Chance
To Promote Your Business....
December 3, 2012 -
Southport, NC - The North Carolina Division of Tourism,
Film and Sports Development is working with Relativity
Media to assist in promoting Safe Haven and to draw
attention of film fans and potential visitors to
Southport and the North Carolina coast. It's a great
opportunity for all of us to benefit from this exposure.
They will be
developing film-based itineraries, promotions, stories
on VisitNC.com, sweepstakes and anything else they can
put together. These will be promoted on VisitNC.com,
through our international offices in Canada, the UK and
German-speaking Europe and possibly in our upcoming
They need information on any news or information you
have about local places that the cast experienced which
would be potential visitor destinations (where they ate,
where they stayed, where they played, etc.) and we'll
include those in as many parts of the promotion as
possible. They are working with Relativity to get that
info directly from the cast as well. The state's stories
will focus on Southport and highlight the entire region
for potential visitors. Bald Head Island, Boiling Spring
Lakes, Bolivia, Caswell Beach, Oak Island & Sunset
Harbor businesses this includes you.
They were very successful in turning the North Carolina
Hunger Games experience into more than $3 million in
publicity and learned a lot from that experience. With
the support from Nicholas Sparks and Relativity (and
such a great location), I'm sure this will be
tremendously successful as well.
We are excited to hear that Relativity is interested in
doing screenings of the movie in the state. Let's all
work together to make sure we have a coordinated effort
to make these as successful as possible in showcasing
the economic value and importance of film production for
all of our constituents.
