CHARLESTON, W.Va. – This July, Delta Sky magazine will spotlight West Virginia in a special section that will be on board Delta Air Lines’ 13,000 daily flights, reaching more than five million readers worldwide.
“The timing is ideal. July is the month the state will be hosting the 2013 National Scout Jamboree at the new Summit Bechtel. This magazine will be a terrific marketing opportunity for our state’s businesses and destinations,” said Keith Burdette, West Virginia Department of Commerce cabinet secretary.
The West Virginia feature will include interviews with key leaders and business profiles of existing and emerging growth industries in an effort to encourage business executives and travelers alike to take note of the state’s advantages. It also will profile the ideal balance between life and work that many find in West Virginia’s small metros and main streets.
“Delta has presented the Mountain State with an outstanding opportunity to showcase our favorable economic and business climate, tourism industry and our livable communities. I fully expect the Delta Sky feature to underscore what we know all too well: West Virginia is a great place to live and do business!” Burdette said.
Starting in February, Delta Sky magazine representatives will be reaching out to leaders throughout the state for input and support. The number of advertisers who participate in the section will determine the number of editorial pages for the West Virginia profile. Ad rates are $14,000 for a full page, $8,000 for a half page and $27,000 for a two-page spread. Space must be reserved by May 13, 2013, for the issue.
