Picture the Recovery is an experiential marketing activation featuring some of the country’s most renown photographers who travel to destinations large and small in a rigged out motorhome and through their artistry creating stunning images and through attention-gathering activities, promote travel and tourism nationally and to the visited destination.
And to help the harder hit destinations, PtR will do all of it AT NO CHARGE* to the destination for the base activation thanks to the support of our wonderful sponsors.
Plus, through the sale of the art, PtR raises money and awareness for the members of the hard-hit hospitality industries.
The journey began in St. Pete Florida in early January 2021 and featured St. Pete’s mayor, Steve Hayes, Visit St. Pete’s CEO and Roger Down, CEO of US Travel.
The Picture the Recovery rigged out motorhome is the home/studio/office, and media backdrop for the trip.
