Managing the Peaks and Valleys of Mountain Tourism
The ASSEMBLY, an industry-wide collaboration for year-round tourism, is pleased to announce its fourth annual conference being held on January 29th in conjunction with SIA’s Snow Show.
With an overarching theme of Collaborating for Year-Round Mountain Tourism, The ASSEMBLY 2016 will make a distinct shift to focus on summer mountain tourism. The mountain travel industry continues to be dependent upon winter snow sports, but summer tourism is growing rapidly and there is currently no forum dedicated to the growth and impact of summer tourism on mountain economies.
The agenda is currently under development and we invite you to take a look at the website (click here) for an overview of what is being considered for the various sessions, and determine how you and your organization will best participate either by attending, providing content and/or joining our collaboration.
A full day agenda, targeted at stakeholders in year-round destination mountain travel, is being planned with morning general sessions setting the stage for the day, complemented by a family of "hands-on" afternoon workshops related to managing the peaks and filling the valleys of the year-round mountain travel economy.
