WFC Establishes Strategic Media Relationship with Coast360


WFC Establishes Strategic Media Relationship with Coast360

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. – (July 15, 2016) World Food Championships announced today a new promotional partnership with Coast360, a local media firm based in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Coast360 is a leading entertainment source for Alabama residents and vacationers looking for the latest eateries, attractions, golf, and fishing along the coast from Perido Key, Florida to Foley, Alabama.

As WFC brings Food Sport to the Gulf Coast region, Coast360 will use its traditional, digital and print media to introduce Food Champs to the local market, as well as help local residents and visitors discover the many ways to see and enjoy the Ultimate Food Fight.

“We think our partnership with Coast360 will be beneficial to many constituents, as we help bring tourists to Orange Beach, and Coast360 helps bring new visitors to WFC. The more we can explain what WFC is to the local market, and the more our core audiences can learn about the local attractions and things to do, the better the experience is going to be for everyone,” said Mike McCloud, CEO of World Food Championships.

Coast360 disseminates information about the Alabama Gulf Coast through two print guides, a website, TV channel, social media and more. Specialized content and overall coverage of WFC will be featured on many of Coast360’s platforms, including its TV Channel and website.

“Coast360 is proud and excited to be the Exclusive Local Media Sponsor for the World Food Championships 2016 as it celebrates its 5th Anniversary in Orange Beach, AL,” said Nancy McMeekin, Publisher of Coast360. "We will be sharing insider info on the competition so visitors and locals in Coastal Alabama can take a bite out of this 7-day foodie extravaganza, featuring chefs from across the U.S. and the globe. This is definitely one of the most exciting events to ever come to our area, and we will make sure our readers and viewers don’t miss their chance to participate!”
