In Search of the Perfect Funding Model
In the last year, everyone has reevaluated their funding models—do they work? Could they be better? As more and more tourism offices look to TIDs and TBIDs, this session will review some DMOs and state tourism offices that have explored new funding models, as well as the challenges and successes faced in the process. Attendees will gain an overview of trends in funding for DMOs and states, learn how to get local stakeholders and lawmakers on your side to make the most of your funding and how to state tourism offices can navigate the EDA grant process.
