Henderson County TDA FAM Tour

August 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The Tourism Development Authority is very pleased to announce that we will resume our familiarization tours for our tourism partners on Wednesday, August 4.  Signup is open now – seating is limited, so please contact Julie Hayes, outreach coordinator, at 828-693-9708 or outreach@visithendersonvillenc.org to reserve a space.

What is a FAM tour?  Guides Michael Arrowood and Julie Hayes will take participants on a FREE all-day bus tour of visitor attractions around Henderson County (lunch and snacks compliments of the TDA).  The tour is open to any of our tourism partners:  accommodation staff, vocational rental owners, attraction staff, tourism-related merchants, event centers, welcome centers and more…  We will meet the owners, learn about the experiences and hear a lot about what makes Henderson County special.

Why go on a FAM tour?  The more tourism partners know about what local attractions have to offer, they more they provide concierge-style help to enhance visitor experience.  We share local knowledge and information, so that you can share more with our visitors.  It’s a win-win – people have a great, personalized experience, so they come back again and tell others about Hendersonville!  (It’s also a great opportunity to network with other tourism partners you may not have met yet.)

What if I miss this FAM tour?  No problem – we currently offer tours in May, August and November, and there are plans to add a fourth tour.  Each one has a different itinerary – so it pays to go on all of them if you can.  Tours start at the Visitor Center at 8:30 am, and we guarantee you will be back by 5:00 pm.
