Regional Workshops & Industry Trainings
Across our expansive region, many tourism communities have actively sought out further trainings in key industry areas. Whether as a result of lack of DMO resource or lack of local expertise in any given area, TSO-sponsored trainings were an investment that gathered stakeholders in their communities to learn more from seasoned veterans about the professional opportunities and challenges before them. Investment for biennium was $5000.
Deliver trainings or workshops in several parts of the region; cover several different topics; invite new stakeholders to the table to learn more about tourism investments in their communities
