Powerful Connections Made During This Year’s Tourism Industry FAM (Familiarization) Tour

Body

For two separate days this month Grey County hosted its annual summer familiarization tour, a guided tour of new tourism experiences on offer in our region this summer season. Offered by Grey County’s tourism department, these FAM Tours provide Grey County’s tourism industry professionals with the opportunity for business to business networking opportunities and allows them to directly connect and share best practices. FAM Tours are also a valuable tool for these tourism ambassadors to experience firsthand what is new and exciting for tourists this summer and to obtain knowledge of attractions and events in the area to share with visitors. Tourists to Grey County are increasingly looking to people who live in the area for trusted advice on what to see and do during their visit and FAM Tours allow businesses to leverage the value of local  recommendations in the tourism industry.
Below are some photo highlights from this year’s 2-day fam tour along with a list of locations the group visited. If you are a Grey County tourism industry partner who wants to know more about participating in our Grey County Tourism FAM tour program please contact us at industry@visitgrey.ca.
