General Description

The public relations internship provides an in-depth learning experience about destination marketing organizations with a focus on assisting the public relations team in marketing metro Atlanta to domestic, international and convention trade media.

Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau (ACVB) is the official destination marketing organization for the city and is designed to promote travel to Atlanta. The public relations team at ACVB is charged with working with members of the media and press to promote positive stories highlighting Atlanta as a leisure travel destination as well as a convention city. ACVB positions Atlanta as the leading destination for conventions and tourism through sales and marketing programs.

Interns at ACVB will dive into portfolio-building public relations projects – this isn’t an internship for coffee fetching and lunch runs. ACVB’s public relations intern is an integral member of the department and will gain practical experience.

Reporting to the team’s public relations manager, this intern will gain a better understanding of the basic day-to-day tasks that make up a public relations position and how the hospitality industry works as a whole. ACVB interns are encouraged to attend industry events and business openings to network with hospitality professionals and build relationships.
