Agritourism Conference Built for Your Future Success
By Mary Stewart, OSU Extension Service
Hello and welcome to the new year!
If you’re like us, you have some lofty goals cleverly disguised as New Year’s resolutions. If any of those goals include furthering your agritourism operation, gaining inspiration, building your agritourism network, or getting to the bottom of some nagging questions, we’ve got an event tailored just for you.
You are enthusiastically invited to the 2018 Agritourism Conference for Clackamas, Marion, and Polk Counties.
The Agritourism Conference is an educational and networking event for farm direct marketers and other agritourism operators, designed for all sizes and types of farms, ranches, woodlands, nurseries, wineries, food processors and botanical gardens. It is also a great place to meet other operators, share your knowledge and learn better business strategy.
We will be addressing such topics as:
- Forming a diverse marketing portfolio to best represent your business
- Adding outdoor recreation tourism to your business mix
- Models of success from here & elsewhere
- How zoning and health regulations affect agritourism operations
- Willamette Valley wine trends
- Lessons learned from the total eclipse
- Web design and increasing SEO
We hope you can join us for this year’s conference. The details are as follows:
WHEN: Wednesday, January 24, 2018, 8:30am-3:00pm
WHERE: The Oregon Garden, Orchid Room, 895 W. Main Street, Silverton
