The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce has a new marketing campaign aimed at establishing Beaufort, S.C., and its surrounding areas as a premier leisure travel destination.

As part of the new marketing campaign, the Chamber collaborated with The Brandon Agency, a South Carolina-base
d, full-service marketing firm, to develop the new logo and tagline for the area, along with new fulfillment such as an updated website and a paid advertising schedule.

The new creative will be used in print advertising beginning in early 2013 and the new logo is currently viewable on the Chamber’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
