Maine Tourism Conference scheduled for Bangor Oct. 19-20

The inaugural Maine-Stay 2022 conference was announced earlier this month and will take place October 19-20 at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor.

The conference will provide tourism and hospitality business owners, managers and decision-makers with new insights and data, and teach emerging trends designed to grow their business, according to its organizers.

“We know that today’s tourism and hospitality business owners, managers and decision makers want their business to grow. With Maine’s turbulent economic climate and booming tourism industry, it’s hard to know if you’re coming or going,” said Elizabeth Sutherland, partner of Sutherland Weston, organizers of Maine-Stay 2022. “But you know that you want to be the place the customers leave and the employees stay. That’s why we developed Maine-Stay 2022.”

The two-day conference with over 20 speakers will bring national insights into the hottest trends in destination marketing. Maine-Stay 2022 also includes many breakout sessions designed to help Maine businesses stay ahead of labor, inflation, and economic concerns.

Marcus Sheridan, New York Times bestselling author and one of Forbes’ 10 Must-Have Presenters, will deliver the keynote address.
