Magazine Advertising Opportunities

With Chattanooga Current

In keeping with our visitors’ needs, we launched our semi-annual magazine, Chattanooga Current in 2021. 

We moved away from a listings-based Visitors Guide. Instead, we are focusing on this travel inspiration publication. Our print magazine tells the authentic stories of our tourism partners and is fully rebuilt as a microsite on VisitChattanooga.com.

200,000 copies are printed in total for the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter issues of the magazine.  An additional 200,000 readers are targeted online. Advertising is priced similar to previous years, but with the opportunity to run full-page ads, sponsored content in the form of articles, and online content, which we drive extra traffic to through our destination marketing efforts.
