Downtown Directory Advertising

Downtown Directory

The official Downtown Directory provides locals and visitors a convenient and comprehensive list of businesses, user friendly maps, parking information, and other helpful Downtown information.

The Downtown Association remains committed to keeping the cost of advertising affordable for its members while ensuring the greatest distribution of the directories as possible.

Once again, we’ve bundled advertising in the Downtown Directory with the highly visible digital sign program at the Downtown Information Kiosk to provide the greatest advertising value for our partners.

Consider the levels of advertising that work best for you and your business this year and let us help deliver customers right to your door.

Downtown Directory Options:

Half Page (5”w x 5”h) $800
Quarter Page (2.4”w x 5”h) $500

PDF, JPG, EPS files accepted

Downtown Directories are distributed throughout the year at the Information Kiosk, at the Visit Santa Cruz Information Center, through dozens of hotels, visitor attractions and businesses.

Downtown Visitor Information Kiosk Digital Sign

No matter where your business is located in Downtown Santa Cruz, The Downtown Information Kiosk can help you get in front of thousands of Downtown pedestrians every week. Our strategically located information Kiosk reaches countless locals and visitors who are already in Downtown.

The digital sign at the Kiosk is a great way to deliver your message to your audience, and we have kept the cost at an extremely accessible level.

The Digital Sign fills the north-facing window, cycling a maximum of 10-minute rotations throughout the day and well into the evening. Each unit of advertising consists of a 10-second slide or video to be run once during each rotation.

The response to the Information Kiosk and the Digital Sign has been amazing. Visitors and locals will see your ad, all day long. This innovative advertising opportunity can help direct thousands of Downtown visitors to your store.
