North South Net and Media Marketing would like to update members on the 2020 USVIHTA publications, PLACES TO EXPLORE and VISIT USVI.

The online presence and apps for each book continued throughout the pandemic period; however, the island distribution of the actual books was disrupted by the COVID quarantine and then the break in allowing visitors back on the island. During the Stay at Home order, we continued to provide limited distribution of PLACES TO EXPLORE, and VISIT remained in the guest rooms. We have ample supply to re-distribute VISIT to hotels that call for more books. The distribution manager has kept inventory and will re-supply books as needed to get us through the season. We also have an ample supply of PLACES TO EXPLORE (and the PLACES TO EAT MAPS) to distribute well into 2021.
 
As you know the magazines were published in early December 2019 and were originally scheduled to be
distributed through December of 2020. We have the best interest of our members and decided to allow advertisers to stay with their ads through another full season and tentatively resume sales in the spring for the 2021/22 editions, once our businesses have been able to get back on our feet. This gives advertisers up to an additional 12 months of distribution of both VISIT and PLACES TO EXPLORE.
