Saturday, June 9, 2018, 8:30 AM — 10:25 AM
Welcome to the Annual Far West Travel Expo. Whether you’ve participated in past Travel Expos or are new this year, here are some tips to help you get the most out of your participation.
Our relationships with our Industry Partners and their participation in our Convention are invaluable. Their future participation and support is influenced by return value. In addition, Travel Expo serves as a venue that attracts new vendors who will be willing to support our Conventions and FWSA Programs in the future. It is our goal to insure that our time with them is a positive and worthwhile experience.
Let the FUN begin!
What To Expect
The Travel Expo is a forum where delegates [voting and non-voting] can meet with the snowsports industry [resorts, operators, and suppliers] in pre-scheduled 15-minute appointments. The Travel Expo is the ski industry’s time for focused one-on-one time with our delegation and membership leaders.
Travel Expo will kick off at 8:45 AM with 5 pre-scheduled 15-minute appointments. Appointments will end at 10:25 AM.
The appointments during Travel Expo are meant to be an introduction to the industry's product. The presentations should be broad enough to satisfy everyone.
Delegates attending the Travel Expo are a part of the process that determines where their clubs travel— if not in 2018 then in 2019 or 2020. They are representing their clubs and will be bringing Information and recommendations back to their board of directors and travel coordinators. Travel Expo is a great way to garner contact information for ski clubs and the industry.
