Online Reputation Management Workshops (Introductory & Advanced) Invitation
Destination British Columbia has free workshops available to us on Online Reputation Management (Introductory & Advanced). In order to host the workshops, we need pre-registration from at least 10 stakeholders in each session. The workshops cover a very timely topic and are a great opportunity. They are most appropriate for all businesses that serve the Tourism sector. The FREE 3-hour workshops are hosted by Destination British Columbia in partnership with Tourism Campbell River & Region, Cortes Island Business and Tourism Association, and Tourism Quadra Island.
Monday, October 21, 2013 Campbell River - Introductory Workshop - 9am-12pm Location TBD
Tuesday, October 22, 2013 Cortes Island Introductory Workshop - 1pm-4pm Location TBD
Wednesday, October 23 Quadra Island - Advanced Workshop - 9:30am-12:30pm Location TBD
The Introductory Workshop: Increasingly, travelers are bypassing traditional sources of trip information and advice and using social networks to consult sources they trust: other travelers and friends. The trend has given rise to a critical new function in tourism: online reputation management, the process of monitoring, reacting to and generating online reviews and content.
The Advanced Workshop: This three-hour workshop is designed for BC tourism operators who have taken the introductory workshop or are self-taught and wish to bring their activities to the next level.
