2017 TOMIS SUMMIT HIGHLIGHTS

 

We had a blast last weekend at our First Annual TOMIS Marketing Summit and official TOMIS Launch Party. Thank you so much to everyone who joined us in Missoula, Montana for a weekend of learning and fun. You are the inspiration for TOMIS and your thoughtful contributions made the summit an epic event. For those of you who couldn’t attend this year, here is a recap of what you missed:

Experience Missoula Like A Local

Locally owned businesses are at the core of TOMIS, so it seemed only fitting that we would partner with local businesses on everything from the event venues to catering. Zootown favorites Market on Front, 5 on Black, Notorious PIG, and Draught Works added local flavor throughout the weekend. First Interstate Bank and the law firm of Garlington, Lohn, and Robinson graciously provided us with meeting and event space on Friday and Saturday.

 

Make A Great First Impression

We kicked off the festivities with an opening reception at Missoula staple and mecca of outdoor fun-the Grizzly Hackle. Locally owned and operated, the Grizzly Hackle has been Missoula’s most trusted fly shop for over 20 years. It was the perfect setting to welcome our summit attendees to downtown Missoula.

 

Workshops To Sink Your Teeth Into

After a night of fun, food, and festivities, the real work began. Friday was a thought-provoking day filled with workshops on everything from SEO to branding. Summit attendees learned about marketing best practices, strategy building, 2018 trends, and of course, TOMIS. Following an engaging day of learning led by the TOMIS team, summit attendees and special guests were treated to a cocktail hour at Brooks & Browns at the Holiday Inn and Parkside before hitting the town on a Thirst Gear Pedal Tour through downtown Missoula.

 

Quality Time With Clients & TOMIS

Saturday began with one-on-one client consultations and end of year reviews. After a brief lunch break, summit participants jumped into hands-on usability testing of the TOMIS software. Members of the team TOMIS were on hand to document and lead this interactive session and CEO Evan Tipton led the feedback and feature request discussion that followed. The reactions we received about the possibilities TOMIS offers to tour operators were amazing and our team is already hard at work implementing the many ideas that were discussed.

 

Get The Party Started

The TOMIS Launch Party rounded out the busy summit weekend. Dinner was provided by Notorious PIG and local brewery Draught Works provided the best beer in town. TOMIS founder and CEO, Evan Tipton gave closing remarks, thanked members of the TOMIS team, and along with University of Montana Clinical Professor and former Microsoft executive, John Chandler presented on the data science powering TOMIS. It was a fantastic night filled with laughter, heartfelt thanks, and bold visions of the future.

 

Once Again, Thank You

Thank you to all who made the TOMIS summit a success, we couldn’t have done any of this without you. We are thrilled you chose to join us on this exciting adventure and we are honored to help you grow your business. Welcome to the TOMIS tribe!
