The workshop will offer you the following:

  • Develop the Story of Your Place –- the essential character of your region, what sets it apart from other regions, as well as how it fits into the character of the Central Cascades;
  • Build the products and story into “tourism products” such as itineraries and packages;
  • Share ideas on how these new products can help attract potential visitors.
