Discovery Tours Go Digital!

This Fall we are putting your Discovery Tours tab back on your listing on
As an exhibitor using multiple media platforms, your tour offer will be among the first posted. This means that in addition to clicking through to your site, users may also click on a link that will display your offer. We will send a link to this offer for all exhibitors, to attendees, post expo encouraging them to make a reservation. Prospects will enter the dates when they plan to travel and “submit” this for you to confirm. It will be sent to the same place where your email leads are delivered, as an email. This should be the same offer you use at expos (you will be able to adjust pricing).

Thank you for your business and we look forward to seeing you soon at the expo.
