Where Trails, Agritourism, and Main Street Meet: Building Capacity & Community Conference

3/28/2023 8:30 am to 3/29/2023 4:30 pm

Event Description

Lifestyle amenities such as the availability of outdoor recreation options, the opportunity to experience the bounty of agricultural producers, and a thriving downtown district with outfitters, restaurants, and locally owned shops are no longer just focused on tourism. Increasingly, job creators are looking for those place-based assets that make a community unique and will draw and/or retain a quality work force. Likewise, job seekers are more inclined to pick the place that they want to live and then look for a job that supports their lifestyle.

Join us in Blacksburg, Virginia on March 28-29 for an educational conference where you'll learn how to build capacity and community with agritourism, trails and Main Streets. Through each concentration area, participants will explore ways of partnership and working together to best take advantage of their respective resources to create an ecosystem that speaks to residents and tourists alike!
