The local travel landscape is rapidly changing to meet the demands of the leisure, event and corporate travel sectors. Whether you're a farmer or producer, a winemaker, a restaurateur or a Destination Marketing Organization, there's more opportunity than ever to capture these markets, as long as you're armed with the latest skills to keep your target demographic coming back for more! With so many external factors affecting your bottom line, from a hurricane decimating your crop to a shutdown delaying an approval on a new label, it’s imperative that every farmer and producer diversify their income through agritourism.

Did you know every $1 invested in tourism marketing, returns on average $3 to $8 back? Not a bad ROI! It's up to us to build this industry through sustainable practices, policy change, dedication and innovation. Let's make an impact!

Escapemaker's Virtual Agritourism Conference maximizes your time, budget and resources and focuses on creative solutions to help you thrive. Each of the 12 digital presentations is 25-55 minutes long, evergreen for 1 year and include additional resource material downloads and links. Plus, all speakers share in the conference profits and/or promotions for their organizations, so you'll feel great by supporting women leaders in the industry!  It's a win-win!
