Official Visitors Guide (OVG)
Hurunui Tourism currently produces the OVG on a yearly basis and prints 60,000 copies.
The OVG is extensively distributed at i-SITEs throughout the top of the South Island, at the Christchurch International Airport and via two distribution companies to motels, hotels and rental vehicle agencies.
Want copies of the OVG? Head to Beck and Cauls website to order either 20, 50 or 100 copies or you can order a carton of 160 guides.
Interested in advertising in the OVG? The OVG takes a couple of months to pull together in preparation for the summer season. We usually start work around June each year and aim to have the guide available in the market before October. Take a look at this years advert and pricing structure.
Any business in the Hurunui District can advertise in the OVG, if you are unsure if you qualify or have any questions about the OVG then please don't hesitate to get in touch.
To display your brochure at the Hanmer Springs information centre and gift shop contact the helpful team for further information.
