2019 Media Marketplace

September 24, 2019 @ 8:00 am - September 26, 2019 @ 2:30 pm

This year’s Marketplace will take place on September 24-26 in Virginia’s newly-expanded Richmond Region. VisitRichmond recently welcomed neighboring Powhatan County and the town of Ashland to their tourism marketing effort. With the Hilton Short Pump as our host hotel, MATPRA’s 2019 Marketplace will shine a spotlight on Powhatan, Ashland, and the nearby booming cosmopolitan area that surrounds the Hilton Short Pump Hotel and Spa. Media and MATPRA colleagues can look forward to a fun mix of small-town charm and backroads hidden gems, just a short drive from Short Pump Town Center with 140 upscale shops & eateries.

The MATPRA Media Marketplace is a great opportunity for both PR professionals and travel journalists to get together and discuss story ideas, arrange visits to our destination and talk about what’s new in our backyards.
