Richmond Hill

Richmond Hill, Ga., is a growing Savannah neighborhood community and eco-tourism destination. In one year, APR delivered nearly $1 million worth of press about their various city-wide initiatives and tourism opportunities.

Notable media placements include Georgia Magazine, Explore Georgia (the travel blog of the state of Georgia’s Department of Economic Development), and Georgia Public Broadcasting, in addition to extensive coverage on all local television stations and all local print and digital media outlets.

Ongoing projects we manage for the City of Richmond Hill and its Convention and Visitors Bureau include:

  • Serve as an administrator for both the Convention and Visitors Bureau and City Facebook pages and regularly develop content for social media posts

  • Promote local events for the City, Historical Society and Ft. McAllister

  • Pitch City representatives to local television stations to promote community activities

  • Pitch the City of Richmond Hill as a travel destination, as well as its notable events, such as Clara Ford 150th Birthday Celebration and Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival, to regional and national media

  • Nominate the City of Richmond Hill for relevant and appropriate awards

  • Counsel City leaders on crisis communications, when necessary, and draft statements for release to local media


  • APR is the gold standard in reaching the news media about HSF’s events and projects. They consistently go above and beyond the call of duty and make us feel like their top client.
