Visit NC 365 Conference CANCELED

Visit NC 365 Conference CANCELED due to Governor and NCDHHS's recommendation regarding COVID-19

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and the Governor have recommended that public gatherings or events of more than 100 people be canceled or rescheduled. As such, the Visit NC 365 Conference in Asheville, which had been scheduled for March 22-24, has been canceled. As an alternative, the major elements of the conference will be provided to partners online during the same timeframe as the conference.

Through April we are hosting a series of webinar programs that provide updates on the status of the industry, share timely consumer research insights, highlight crisis response efforts and recovery plans, share best practices in PR and social media, and introduce our co-op marketing program.
