Go International

Fourth Annual Go International

Monday, January 27 – Tuesday, January 28, 2020

Sharpen your skills in leveraging cultural tourism as an engine for economic development and cultural perpetuation within your community.

Part of AIANTA’s International Outreach program, the two-day Go International seminar is designed to prepare tribes and Native-owned tourism enterprises to do business in the international marketplace.

The two-day training is designed to help tribes, tribal communities, businesses and tourism professionals find success in the international marketplace, especially when participating in such major international trade shows such as Showcase USA-Italy, ITB Berlin, World Travel Market in London and IPW. Attending these trade shows can help attract visitors from Germany, Italy and the UK, all of which are among the highest-spending travelers in the world.

Get an in-depth look at the tools needed to create a successful marketing outreach program targeting the top inbound international markets to Indian Country.
