Legal Forms Toolkit for Adventure Travel Companies – Interactive Webinar
THURSDAY, JUNE 23, 2011 – 10:00 AM PDT
MEMBERS ONLY – MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
Every adventure travel company requires a solid legal foundation. For this reason and in response to member suggestions, ATTA is considering whether it would be feasible to develop and provide members with an online database of standard legal forms that would be useful to their businesses. To that end, on June 23, 2011, ATTA will be hosting an interactive webinar to discuss the types of legal forms that should be in every adventure travel company’s toolkit.
Two ATTA members who are also attorneys, Mona McPhee and Chunnie Wright, will provide an overview of the major legal areas in which agreements are typically required such as risk management, employment, intellectual property, confidentiality agreements and more. ATTA members will have an opportunity to provide input and ideas on templates that would be helpful to them in running a successful business.
Content is King; Making the most of your supplier/operator relationships to enhance marketing strategies.
THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 2011 – 10:00 AM PDT
MEMBERS ONLY – MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
In the Adventure Travel Industry today, online marketing is the most compelling opportunity for many operators as these strategies are inexpensive and a good way to interact directly with traveling consumers by telling stories and sharing experiences; bringing destinations to life. Often, travel suppliers and operators seem to be working in “silos” instead of partnering when it comes to online marketing.
On this webinar, Sarah Fazendin and Kathy Dragon with Travel Marketing Worldwide share opportunities to strengthen online marketing strategies by focusing on how suppliers and operators can more effectively work together, share many strong examples and explain how ATTA members can take advantage of tools and technology that are readily available to implement strong and compelling online marketing campaigns.
