Meet & Greet for Tourism Operators

Tue. 6 Feb, 2018 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

You are invited to a "neighborhood" Meet & Greet at the Fundy Geological Museum.  The "neighborhood" is the Fundy Shore, Five Islands to Advocate and beyond, where we live, work, play and embrace local food, entertainment and outdoor activities.  This "neighborhood" offers a vibrant array of possibilities, an amalgamation of a unique Tidal landscape, a rich historical culture and an artistic community, ready to be explored and shared.

Objective and Goal - This tourism/business based event is designed to give operators the opportunity to meet each other and to gain an awareness of what others are doing in the area.  Knowing what is going on and what is available in the "neighborhood" is beneficial to all when dealing with seasonal visitors.  This event also welcomes new residents and operators to the community.

The Event - 4 minutes will be alloted to each operator to introduce themselves and their operation.  Informative handouts are encouraged.  Example, a sample menu or tour brochure.  A slide presentation will be arranged with the photos supplied by operators, prior to the event.  These images will be shown during your 4 minute presentation.  Please forward any images you wish to be included.

When - Tuesday, February 6th, 2pm-4pm

Where - Fundy Geological Museum, 162 Two Island Rd.

RSVP - Please RSVP by January 26th, 2018. Please forward any images that you would like to be shown during your 4 minute presentation by January 31st, 2018. (Forward to: )

Your attendance is important; you are part of the "neighborhood".  Your business community wants to meet you, learn about your operation and promote you and your operation to visitors.
