Destination Business BootCamp Starts Today: Owners Come to Longmont to Reinvent Their Businesses and Communities

Sep 21, 2010 | Competing in Today's Economy, Destination University News, General

I’m going to be posting short excerpts from our Destination Business BootCamp that is happening today over at the Marriott Hotel Complex here in Longmont, Colorado.  We have owners flying in from Australia, Newfoundland and British Columbia Canada, and groups of business owners coming from New Jersey and Ohio as part of our Community Reinvention Program.  We also have attendees from many other states.  We have one business owner from Longmont, too!  Imagine that!

As part of our program, we also let every attendee consult with advertising guru, Rich Carraro (www.Clownbike.com) and he’s flying in from New York City.  He creates great Shop Local campaigns, and he’s done several for other communities.
If you are reading this, you aren’t attending, but you can get a feel for what’s going on as owners understand that they can create Destinations out of their businesses and bust out of this sluggish economy.
