Discover Durham FAQ
We’re an open book.
If you’ve got questions about what destination marketing is, how we operate, and what our policies are, you’ve come to the right place. If you don’t find the specific answers to your questions here, we’re only a phone call away at 800-446-8604.

We take pride in Durham, and our primary goal is to provide content to visitors that reflects our brand values and tells the story of why someone would consider Durham as a destination. Do you have a story idea that will attract and inform prospective Durham visitors? Great! We'd love to hear from you.
Before you pitch an idea for a blog post, video or other piece of editorial content, here's what we'll need from you:
  1. An overview of your story idea. A list of sources we can contact, a topic, proposed angle and how it relates to one or more of our brand values (positive, inspiring, inclusive) would be a great place to start.
  2. A prospective timeline. We plan our articles six weeks in advance. Therefore, if you have an idea that is time-sensitive or seasonal, please give us notice so that we can make sure it's relevant by the time it's published.
  3. Recognition of our mission and purpose. Our potential use of your idea is strictly contingent upon its alignment with our mission and purpose. We endeavor to include content that fulfills our mission and is consistent with our editorial guidelines, but cannot guarantee the use of any particular content or content ideas.
  4. Adaptability. Discover Durham reserves the right to review, revise and/or reject any and all content that you provide in our sole discretion. We may not be able to accommodate your story, but trust that there's an editorial strategy behind our decision.
  5. Does your idea check all of our boxes? Send it along to enews@​​.
