2019 NYSTIA Integrated Print & Multimedia Co-op Programs


The NYSTIA 2018 print co-op advertising programs generated tens of thousands of leads to participating destinations, generating booking and sales for NYSTIA members. We will build on that success in 2019.

We will be publishing a PURE DIGITAL Co-op program page shortly.

This page reviews the integrated print & digital programs submitted by our print media partners. These programs are critically tied to imminent deadlines for many magazines and newspapers. Please download the NYSTIA Print & Multimedia Co-op Deadlines and the NYSTIA Print & Multimedia Co-op Rates summary sheets beginning to make your 2019 NYSTIA co-op plans.

NYSTIA, in collaboration with our print media partners, is presenting members with a new and innovative range of print media co-op advertising programs. New for 2019, many of our media partners have packaged print and digital components in order to maximize the audience and optimize the impact for your destinations. Additionally, many of our print media partners have provided literature about their products and services beyond the co-op programs in order to make you aware of the array of services and media vehicles available to meet your marketing needs. Most of the profiles will feature "click HERE" links to download this literature.

As we begin the new year, we will be featuring individual media partners in email/blog outreach on a regular basis so that they each have the opportunity to communicate directly with you in a timely manner. It is our hope that this will enhance member-to-member communications and lead to stronger partnerships in the year to come.

Thank you all in advance for your interest and participation in the 2019 print/multimedia co-op marketing programs. I look forward to partnering with you in 2019!

AARP 2019 Co-op Targets Life Stage Travel Segments

Participants in the NYSTIA 2018 co-op page were so pleased with the lead generation that we are doubling up in 2019! The 2019 AARP / NYSTIA programs target two different 50+ age segments based on life stage travel preferences and seasonal timing. Regional target of the 2019 NYSTIA Co-op program will be the Mid-Atlantic Region which consists of NY, NJ and PA.

In the April/May issue, we target AARP's age 50 to 59 "active & adventurous" audience, a prime audience going into key vacation months with both couples and family travel peaking. 61% of AARP members took multi-generational family vacations last year (43% more likely than non-members), a segment dominating the leisure travel market!

Later in 2019, for the Oct/Nov issue, target AARP's even larger 60 to 69 "empty nester" audience, a key target for travel destinations during off-peak months when school is in session. Financially secure with fewer obligations, 65% of AARP members took an "empty nester" vacation last year (47% more likely than non-members).

Powerfully enhancing AARP's impact and visibility for NYSTIA members, the 2-for-1 matching content offer is back for both issues planned in 2019. NYSTIA's co-op advertising page will be matched with custom travel content created by AARP Media at no additional cost!

AARP The Magazine April/May issue space deadline is January 25. Act now to secure your space in this issue.

AARP The Magazine Oct/Nov issue space deadline is July 25.
