CBC House Programs: Experiential PR

With journalists spread thinner than ever, how do you get media to notice your brand?

At CBC House Programs, you have the opportunity to get your brand and product in front of top-tier media and influencers set against a backdrop of the country’s most aspirational locations, from California wine country to the Rocky Mountains.

We offer 3 categories of these programs: our core House Programs (Summer House, Fall House, Culinary House, and Hosting House), our Destination Experiences rooted in travel (such as Aspen Experience, Deer Valley Experience, Charleston Experience), and our One-Day Experiences that take place in NYC for niche categories (such as Parenting Experience and Pampering Experience). These programs span categories from fashion, food, beauty, outdoor, travel, and more. If you’re a consumer brand or service, we have a program for you.

Relaxing at Fall House

Tell your brand’s authentic story through 1-2 hour long branded activations that tie into each House location.  You’ll get quality one-on-one time with top editors and influencers while creating memorable experiences the media will never forget. The next time they think about that trip, they’ll always remember your brand along with it.

Best of all, you don’t have to sweat the details. We’ve been building relationships with press at our award-winning House programs for over 15 years, so you can rest easy that you’re in good hands.

What should you expect at a CBC House Program?


Our House programs take brands from coast to coast with experiential PR activations in luxe settings.

At last year’s Fall House, editors and influencers enjoyed immersive experiences like aerial yoga, sunset sailing, and poolside facials, placing brands into the laid-back “California Dreaming” lifestyle of Santa Barbara.

Fun at Fall House

Thanks to activations like wine tastings and DIY holiday décor, home and entertaining brands left editors with a lasting impression (and ideas for future articles) at Hosting House in the Hamptons.


Our Destination Experiences highlight the unique culture and attractions of action-packed locations like Deer Valley, Utah and Aspen, Colorado. In 2018, editors got a hands-on introduction to lifestyle brands through activities ranging from ski and snowboard lessons to après-ski whiskey tastings.
