Preparing and Positioning Attractions for Hyper-Local Recovery Success

To benefit from the upcoming recovery, travel attractions will need to prepare and position for visitors in the local, in-state, and regional markets.

Uncover the forces and feelings impacting customer buying decisions, and craft a communications and on-site strategy to ensure customer safety and security. Learn to evaluate and create an attraction touch point plan to instill guest comfort. Plus discover how to develop and deliver new engaging visitor experiences that refresh, innovate and optimize your offerings. Additionally, it will be important to build partnerships with local lodging and attraction partners to package and promote your offerings to multiple market channels and extend your promotional reach.

Join us for a special Tuesday Talk with Joe Veneto of Veneto Collaboratory of Boston. We'll learn how attractions can strategically respond to the present situation and in particular how we can all plan for our eventual reopening.
