FestivalSeekers Expands Its Coverage

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 12, 2013


Calgary, AB – As spring approaches, Seekers Media, founder of media brands SnowSeekers and FestivalSeekers, is stoked to expand its online, social, and mobile guide to share and promote festivals across British Columbia.

“It’s really exciting, because it marks a new chapter in Seekers Media’s history,” said Jim Barr, CEO of Seekers Media.  “Now that we are servicing over 40,000 information requests a week through our online, mobile and social media offerings, it only makes sense to see us move our brands into new regions to better serve our audience and continue to see that audience grow.”

Over the 2012/2013 winter season, FestivalSeekers welcomed B.C. coverage by showcasing events along the Powder Highway and within the Okanagan.

With seven of the 17 Seekers Media correspondents located around parts of B.C., FestivalSeekers’ has an established presence that can only evolve into a stronger B.C. base overtime. This mission is simple, to help its audience realize even more event and festival-minded road trip potentials this summer.

The ongoing extension of FestivalSeekers coverage will give a heightened awareness to the public of all the awesome events happening around British Columbia and Alberta.

“The festival season is a really cool one that lasts throughout the year,” said Barr. “We really ramp things up in April with the World Ski and Snowboard Festival in Whistler, Drumheller’s DinoFest in June, and run solid coverage right through to Jasper’s Dark Sky Festival in October.”

In its fourth year, Seekers Media is a leading source of information for planning winter and festival getaways in the Pacific Northwest. With a suite of tools spanning mobile, online, and social media channels, Seekers Media empowers travel enthusiasts to plan the best experiences possible. Sharing through Seekers Media’s mobile offerings and social media channels helps festival seekers get the most out of their time at a destination.
