As you’ve likely already know from the posters around town, a large tourism workshop and presentation are coming to town.

As you’ve likely already know from the posters around town, a large tourism workshop and presentation are coming to town.

The presentation entitled “Seven Deadly Sins Communities Make in Tourism,” given by Mike Stolte of CIEL (Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurial Leadership) will address issues in our community and actions that can be taken.

The free talk on Jan. 29 at the Nakusp Arena auditorium covers a range of topics. Not only will the seven most common mistakes that all communities make be raised, but also whether or not our town has a “buzz” and those elusive things that attract and keep people coming back for more.

The talk will also examine local branding and whether or not local businesses and organizations are making the most of traditional and new media in their marketing efforts.

A free workshop is being offered for local businesses, government, and interested people on Jan. 30 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Nearly all seats are taken, so if you’d like a spot, contact Peter at 250-265-4625 or email Welkerling@telus.net as soon as possible.
