Planning ahead?
Email Sandy@BedandBreakfast.com so we can start telling folks about your upcoming conference. We highly recommend adding a conference information page to your state association website so we can link directly to it. These listings are a free service of BedandBreakfast.com.

 

Need Speakers? BedandBreakfast.com can help make your state or regional meeting a success. Eric Goldreyer, Sandy Soule, Tim Wilson, Janice Hurley  and Marti Mayne are available to lead educational workshops on a wide variety of topics, including internet marketing, email effectiveness, customer service, promoting and publicizing your B&B, and lots more. Ben Littler, Product Manager for RezOvation, is available to lead user group sessions that will help you get the most out of your software.

                                                                                 

Need vendors? To maximize vendor participation in your conference, include several hours for your members to enjoy the trade show, in addition to the times when workshops are in progress. Fifteen minutes between workshops is inadequate for all concerned; recent conference evaluations show that innkeepers are placing an increasingly high value on vendor time. Reliable high-speed Internet access is essential.
