We are getting underway with production of our 2021-22 Ballston Spa Map and Visitor Guide, now in its 16th year. An advance notice was emailed to all business and non-profit members on January 26. We love Ballston Spa, and what better way to showcase our wonderfully vibrant village’s shops, restaurants and services! ALL BSBPA business and non‐profit members in good standing will be listed on the directory page as part of your member benefits. Our 2021 Schedule of Events, historical points of interest and Farmers’ Market vendors for 2021 are also included in the guide.
We will print ten thousand (10,000) copies to be placed in high traffic areas including the Saratoga Visitors Center and Urban Cultural Center, Saratoga County Chamber kiosk in downtown Saratoga Springs, Northway Exit 9 rest stop, Empire State Plaza Visitor Center, Chamber of Southern Saratoga County offices, Proctor’s Theater, Albany International Airport, area Amtrak stations, museums in Ballston Spa and Saratoga, as well as over 2 dozen hotels and motels from Schenectady to Clifton Park to Saratoga Springs and shops around the region. Map guides are available for any of our members to have in their establishments and the plastic map guide holders on the directory signs throughout the downtown area are stocked all year long. The Map Guide also has been used by local real estate companies for relocation packets.
Advertising opportunities for member businesses and organizations are available on a first come, first serve basis. The Map Guide is one of our greatest marketing tools throughout the year, not only for the tourist season, but for new and current residents in the area, and has proved successful in attracting visitors to our village and for advertising local businesses. This is an ideal opportunity for new and returning members to get their business “on the map” for a very reasonable cost!
Our goal is to encourage seasonal and local visitors to attend our events, shop in our stores, eat in our restaurants, visit our museums and attractions and enjoy the many fine amenities and services that Ballston Spa has to offer.
At this time, all back cover and inside cover ads have been filled. Please note that all ads must be camera ready—we do not design ads for the guide. If you require this service, we encourage you to refer to our website for a list of BSBPA member graphic designers. If you had an ad in the previous Map Guide that you would like to re‐use, it will already be on file–just let us know. Remember, your BSBPA membership dues need to be current in order to take advantage of this opportunity. Your promptness with ad payment is greatly appreciated. For more information or to submit your ad, please contact the BSBPA office firstname.lastname@example.org or 518 885‐2772. We would like to have all ads by March 1, 2021.
