Looking Ahead to a Fall Meeting Planner FAM

This fall we will be hosting a select few meeting planners to Western Montana’s Glacier Country on a tour through the region that will include a firsthand look at our meeting offerings. We’ll explore Missoula’s thriving music, brewery and culinary scenes, along with meeting space at flagship hotels and the University of Montana. Next, the FAM will take us to Kalispell where history, culture and proximity to Glacier National Park make it a prime meeting destination. We’ll wrap up the FAM in the charming town of Whitefish, visiting various locations offering distinct meeting venues, including lodge- type convention space.

Yes, it’s true that travel worldwide has been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 virus. Many spring conferences and meetings have been postponed or cancelled and the term “social distancing” added to our everyday vocabulary. In these uncertain times, something we can do is look to the future. Glacier Country Tourism is doing our part to help “flatten the curve,” but also planning for when things get back to feeling a bit more normal. With that, we are full steam ahead on hosting our fall Meeting Planner FAM.
