A press release form is available upon request to be completed and returned to the bureau three weeks prior to your event. The release will be disseminated to local media outlets, applied to KPLC-TV's Breakfast Bar, and posted on http://www.visitlakecharles.org/ free of charge. For events with 500 or more total rooms blocked, the CVB can schedule out of town media appointments. For events with 1,500 total rooms blocked, the CVB will host a press conference, upon request. Please note that the CVB cannot guarantee that the media will publicize every event. Contact Eric Zartler, senior sales manager/athletics at firstname.lastname@example.org.
