"Succeeding with Heritage Tourism: Market Information, Resources and Ideas for Attracting More Visitors through Creative Collaboration"

You may already know that heritage tourists tend to take longer trips, spend more money and seek a wide range of activities when they travel. So if you're interested in drawing more heritage tourists to your attraction, you may want to explore creative collaborations with other rural tourism draws in your area, including outdoor recreation, the arts and agritourism.

Join us this April 20-21 for free half-day workshops custom designed for Central and Eastern Oregon. The workshops are sponsored by the Oregon Heritage Commission, with statewide partner funds provided by the Oregon Cultural Trust.

The workshops will give you information, examples, working tools, new contacts and networking opportunities to strengthen your own attraction as a draw and build collaborations that create uniquely satisfying visitor experiences!

The workshops will run from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Choose from two convenient locations:
*         Wednesday, April 20, Tamástslikt Cultural Institute, 47106 Wildhorse Rd., Pendleton
*         Thursday April 21, Juniper Hall, Malheur National Forest/Blue Mountain Ranger District Office, 431 Patterson Bridge Rd., John Day

Pre-registration is encouraged. Just send an email to heritage.info at oregon.gov<mailto:heritage.info at oregon.gov> with your name, email address and workshop location.
