"Cut the Digital Clutter" Join us in April for the North Idaho Tourism Summit

Staying with what is relevant in the travel and tourism industry and our theme of creating strategic partnerships the theme of the 2015 one day conference will be Cut the "Digital" Clutter. 

Who is your current customer? Who do you want to be your customer? With the ever increasing use of digital marketing/advertising avenues how do you know which one to choose? How do I get started using these different technologies? If I am already using these technologies how do I use them more effectively to target the audience I am trying to reach? These questions and more will be answered on the day of the conference as well as giving you several opportunities to network, tell people about your business, and form those strategic partnerships!

Entry will be $39/person
Vendor/Table Sponsors will be $89 (includes 1 entry) 

If you would like more information about the summit or are interested in becoming a vendor/table sponsor please email me at jamie@jmorgan.us or call me at 208-991-0040.
