  • #JaxfromHome Virtual Experiences

    If your business is still making efforts to reach folks through social media and the internet, #JaxfromHome will be a way to magnify your efforts. And if you are not, then let us be a resource to help you get your business out there in this time of need.

    How will this partnership work? We want to highlight businesses through virtual tours, webcams and live videos. If your business is planning on doing a Facebook Live, Instagram Live or have a Virtual Tour or webcam please reach out to Lauren Stuart, lstuart@visitjacksonville.com, with the day and estimate time of your live video.

    • Facebook Live (Preferred Method): Visit Jacksonville will cross promote your LIVE video so it appears on Visit Jacksonville’s Facebook Page.
    • Instagram Live: Visit Jacksonville will include a #JaxfromHome countdown message in our Instagram stories directing our viewers to your LIVE video on your account.
    • Virtual Tours or streaming webcams: Send us virtual tours/short video clips that we can share on Visit Jacksonville’s social media or links to where these are posted on your website.
  • Virtual Events

    While we may not be able to leave our homes right now, people are still looking for ways to be entertained and virtual events are a new creative way to do just that!

    If your attraction/business is open and you have a social media account then you have all you need to plan a virtual event that people from across the globe can enjoy. We have created a Virtual Events Calendar to help spread the word on these fun online activities. We can even help promote these events by hosting a social media viewing party to ensure more people are watching and experiencing your business from home.

    Submit your events to our calendar and reach out to us if you need ideas for unique virtual events for your business.
