Visit Southeast Montana tourism offers marketing workshops

Visit Southeast Montana tourism will offer marketing workshops for tourism partners across the region. A tourism partner is a business or non-profit organization that caters to visitors—local, regional, domestic or international. This includes those who promote museums, attractions, food and beverage locations, and lodging facilities but also hunting and fishing guides, outfitters, suppliers and peripheral organizations.

Workshops will be held in March 4 in Billings and March 5 in Miles City. Topics include:

• Marketing Toolbox: How to Access These No-Cost Tools (Brenda Maas, Marketing Manager for Visit Southeast Montana)

• How to Maximize the upcoming Travel Blog Exchange Conference (Aly Murnion, Leisure Market Manager of Visit Billings)

• Social Media I: Introduction to Social Media (Miranda Gilbert of Girl Geek Communications)

• Social Media II: Maximizing Facebook & Instagram (Miranda Gilbert of Girl Geek Communications)

• Make Your Grant Application Stand Out (Sabre Moore Executive Director of Carter County Museum)

“The intent of these workshops is to bring regional tourism partners together for a day of education and networking,” said Visit Southeast Montana marketing manager Brenda Maas. “The tourism industry is dynamic and we strive to bring applicable practices to our partners.”

Each day is structured into one-hour sessions with significant breaks to connect with others across the region. To register for the March 4 workshop in Billings, see To register for the March 5 workshop in Miles City, see
