The Product Development Workshop will help you learn how YOUR BUSINESS can make money in rural tourism by developing products that travelers will buy. This FREE workshop is fast-paced, entertaining and geared to help your business increase your profits by developing a compelling story, and creating travel packages and multi-day travel itineraries. The morning will leave you with many, many ideas that identify new partnerships and initiate new collaborations that will increase your bottom line.

The workshop will offer you the following:

  • Quick assessment of travel products currently available to visitors in your place...and a sure-fire way to identify what would best improve things for your visitors;
  • 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.
