"Our first year in our new Group Tour market has been quite a success. We appreciate the knowledge you and your team provided in helping us get of the ground in 2017."
Julie & Erin, Northern Kentucky CVB
“The Fire Starter Brands’ sales mission was great! Seeing a tour operator at a trade show and being able to say, ‘I was just in your office with Fire Starter Brands,’ really opened new doors for me.”
Marceline, Experience Columbus
"I thank you for the fantastic experience of connecting with operators at their offices, who otherwise would probably not have gotten to hear firsthand about Baton Rouge. Also, the experience of connecting with other tourism sales managers was equally as fulfilling. I learned so much from both groups that I can bring back to my office. I’m still flying high and telling everyone who asks how productive and informative it was for us!"
Tracy, Visit Baton Rouge
“I found our day very productive and was conducive for us all to learn about our partner’s destinations. I felt the process successfully brought together many folks who may have not known each other nor their tourism assets, but later became friends by the end of the session. That’s a win win for all! I’ll be glad to recommend a professional as thorough and comforting as you...”
