How do cultural heritage tourism sites and destinations survive –or even thrive – in an economic downturn that seems to have no end in sight? If your organization is struggling to answer this question, Survival Boot Camp is for you! Boot Camp is a customized half day or full day training session designed to inspire with survival stories from across the country, engage participants in sharing their challenges and ideas and discover creative strategies for their own sites and destinations. Survival Boot Camp showcases case studies and research from a year-long development project by the National Trust’s Heritage Tourism Program. 11 Key Survival Strategies for Tough Economic Times and almost 100 real-life stories show how these strategies have worked for cultural and heritage tourism organizations across the country. Case studies feature all aspects of cultural heritage tourism including historic sites, museums, Main Street programs, scenic byways, national and state heritage area, arts organizations and state and community tourism agencies.
The Heritage Tourism Program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation offers a variety of workshop formats that are customized to the needs of the client.
