Time is Closing In..Get Involved in the BRAND NEW Map and Mini Guide

FLTA partners spoke and we have heard! Back by popular demand and being published soon is the FLTA map and mini guide. This tri-fold, rack card sized fold out road map has been a staple of FLTA's value added offerings for years. The map and mini guide, inclusive of partner contact information, took a couple year's hiatus and the demand for this piece is higher than ever! The map and mini guide is a great Finger Lakes regional road map on one side and on the flip side, every single one of FLTA's partners are listed with a business name and phone number. This featured listing on the map comes to FLTA partners as an inclusive benefit of partnership. No additional investment is required for a basic listing in 75,000 of these printed map and mini guides as a thank you for your support! If you would like some additional exposure through a bolded listing, to make your business stand out on the page, or have an interest in representing your business in the ONE BLOCK AD LEFT, please contact Barb Kolonoski at 607-425-0134 or via email at barbk@fingerlakes.org.
