CHARLESTON, SC, June 3, 2016 – Coming soon to luxury hotel rooms in beautiful South Carolina: the 2016-17 editions of Discover Charleston, Connoisseur and Sea Island Concierge, valuable area guides for locals and visitors alike.

The first of these three beautiful, eye-catching and informative guides is Discover Charleston, a publication recently recognized with the Award of Excellence from the Communicator Awards for writing/editorial, which is distributed in local hotel rooms to boost tourism throughout the greater Charleston area. The second is Connoisseur, the official in-room publication of Kiawah Island Golf Resort, currently in its 18th edition and the product of a long-standing partnership with the resort. The third is Sea Island Concierge, distributed throughout various properties in the barrier islands surrounding Charleston. The guides are distributed in 7,749 rooms at 43 properties in the area.

“Charleston boasts a unique culture, history and vibe that seamlessly blends the trends of today with the milestones of the past,” states Marisa Beazel, President & Publisher of HCP/Aboard. “And it’s that personality that we try to capture in our publications and present to readers who are eager to get to know this destination.”

HCP/Aboard Publishing will host a release event for these publications on June 15 at 82 Queen to celebrate its many years in the market. Nestled in downtown Charleston’s historic French Quarter for the past 33 years, 82 Queen is a three time winner of the ‘Best City Restaurant’ award from Southern Living magazine and five time recipient of the Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator magazine. A favorite destination for locals and visitors alike, this 300-year-old address represents both the history and the cuisine of the Lowcountry.

Local advertisers, sponsors and supporters are invited to get the first look at this year’s stunning editions. Brent Jonas, Director of Stakeholders Relations from the Charleston Regional Development Alliance, will also be on hand to provide valuable insights into the area’s tourism industry.
