Coping with Crisis – Business to Business Response for Tourism

Speakers -Linea Gagliano, Communications Director for Travel Oregon; Caroline Park, Owner of Thunder Island Brewing Co. in Cascade Locks and Joe Ibrahim, Head Winemaker at Willamette Valley Vineyards

OTTA is tackling a timely topic with a panel discussion about crisis response for the tourism industry. Learning more about the industry support system in Oregon and how it has been successfully activated in recent years will help us all be better prepared for the next unfortunate set of circumstances that is bound to come along. Communication is critical, so don’t pass up this opportunity to be in the room and learn what role you and your business will have in being part of the solution.

  • Following lunch, we’ll conduct a B2B with some of our members and the receptive operators from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm. Qualified members who are interested in working with receptives will have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with them. For those not participating in the B2B, we’ll have an OTTA member mixer from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm in a separate room.  During the mixer, Gabi Duarte with Travel Oregon will be presenting regarding how to work with receptive operators.
  • The Holiday Soirée will take place on the Portland Spirit that evening. Boarding will start at 6:00 pm and we’ll cruise and party from 6:30 – 9:30 pm, with the receptive operators as our distinguished guests.
