Gabriola Island visitor guide brochure

The 2020/21 Gabriola Tourism Brochure will have a new look and feel. The new design focus on storytelling, off season promotion and engaging our visitors with a genuine gulf island vibe.

“Turning the off-season on” is the focus. Bringing opportunities for warmth and nourishment of the body, mind and soul. Beaches to yourself and woodstoves. An abundance of learning opportunities and ways to expand your horizons.

We will aim to educate our visitors with a genuine request to take care and walk thoughtfully while visiting. The brochure will communicate to all visitors, especially in the summer with fire bans, water restrictions and ferry etiquette, that the island culture and ecosystems are a unique balance and worth respecting.

The 2020/21 brochure is a larger size format. It is 8.25 inches wide x 10.75 inches high. There will be 35,000 printed copies which will be ready for distribution in April 2020.

Distribution includes but is not, limited to: BC Ferries all major routes, BC Visitor Centres, all Gabriola households, available at key Gabriola businesses, distributed at Vancouver Island Tourism events and available online at hellogabriola.ca

Deadline for Brochure Ads

The deadline is Friday, January 31st to reserve your spot and submit your artwork and copy.
Payment options are available. If you have any questions, contact tammie@gabriolachamber.ca.
