National Destination Marketing Campaign

Following the success of Visit County Durham’s Memorable Moments campaign, which reached over 2.25 million consumers, our latest national destination marketing campaign launched October 2023, delivered in partnership with the county’s tourism businesses.

Do Durham Differently showcases unique experiences from across the county, emphasising how diverse Durham is. Running from autumn 2023 to spring 2024, activity will include partnerships with national media titles, digital advertising, influencer commissions and media visits.

Please contact partners@visitcountydurham.org to discuss ongoing opportunities.
