June Hospitality Tour 2016
Do you want local hospitality employees to know more about your business so they can then provide helpful information about your business to tourists?
If so, sign up to be one of the stops on the HDCA’s 2016 Hospitality Tour!
Info on how the hospitality tour will work:
Who: HDCA, downtown businesses and local hospitality personnel
When: June – exact date and time TBD
What and Why: The hospitality tour is a chance to bring local hospitality personnel downtown to help familiarize them with our downtown businesses so they can be prepared to inform tourists about everything we have to offer downtown! We will also open up this opportunity to owners and employees of downtown businesses that may want to be more informed about what their neighbors have to offer.
How it works:
The tour will consist of two parts – 1) A guided tour and 2) A self-guided tour.
*Guided Tour: The guided tour will be approximately 1 hour. During the guided tour, the tour participants will make a guided lap around downtown and businesses will have the chance to introduce themselves to the group and give them a brief explanation of your business (seriously brief, ~ 1 min).
*Self-Guided Tour: The self-guided tour serves as an opportunity for tour participants to get a more in-depth look at businesses. During the self-guided tour, tour participants will have an opportunity to select 15 or more businesses to visit. Those who visit 15 businesses and get a sticker validating they visited each business will be entered into a drawing for a prize.
The self-guided tour will include a takeaway sheet that gives a brief overview of each business. Businesses must stamp this sheet to confirm a participant has come into their store. If you want to incentivize participants to choose your business during the self-guided tour, you will have an opportunity to do so.
If you’d like to participate, let me know by replying to this email by June 6th and I will follow up with next steps.
