Spring FAM Recap

In June, Western Montana’s Glacier Country welcomed four meeting planners from around the U.S. on a hosted familiarization tour throughout the region. During their time in Western Montana, they toured our three anchor cities—Missoula, Kalispell and Whitefish—where we showcased meeting facilities, off-site venues, farm-to-fork offerings and authentic Montana experiences custom-made for meetings. They were greeted with jaw-dropping views—that included Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake—along with fresh Rocky Mountain air. For a full recap of the FAM tour, check out our business-to-business blog for more information. If you are interested in participating in our next Meeting Planner FAM in June 2019, send an email to our Tourism Sales Manager, Debbie Picard, at to apply.
