The Heartland-Approved Epic Group Experience Designation Programs Aims to Strengthen Tourism Partners

Destination Seneca County and the Sandusky County Visitors Bureau have announced a partnership to host a new program through the Ohio Travel Association: The Heartland-Approved Epic Group Experience Designation Program. The program will be offered through a one-day workshop at The Renaissance of Tiffin on December 9 from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM. To reserve a spot for the workshop, attendees must purchase a ticket at www.destinationsenecacounty.org/Epic by November 24 to receive the early bird special of $150 per person. After this time, the price will increase to $250 per person. The cost of the workshop is being supplemented by bed tax dollars by Destination Seneca County and the Sandusky County Visitors Bureau.

Designation as an Epic Group Experience creates a competitive advantage in the group travel market. Seneca County tourism partners will rise to the top of competition. Designation shows the group tour operators that our community is committed to epic group experiences. Destination Seneca County, the Sandusky County Visitors Bureau and the Ohio Travel Association will ensure that over 1,500 tour operators and groups nationwide see the designation achievement.

The Epic Group Experience program was developed with input from more than 275 group travel operators, receptive operators and visitor bureaus. Standards and best practices were approved by three teams of tour operators and suppliers.

The designation process opens up a wide range of tools, trainings and information on how to deliver and market group experiences. Your staff will have an operator-approved checklist for servicing groups, taking the guesswork out of the process. Tourism partners receive standards and best practices based on what tour operators and their customers want.
