This October we are gathering for the 1st annual TOMIS marketing summit AND celebrating the official launch of the new, TOMIS marketing software platform! The summit is a private event for existing clients and select potential clients, guest speakers, TOMIS employees, advisors, investors, media and friends in the industry!

This is not your typical outdoor industry conference. We will avoid the fluff and marketing related jargon you hear at most conferences. We are going to take a deep dive into the strategic ways we can grow every client’s business in 2018 and explore how we can leverage our first of its kind software to suit your specific needs.

As a Tour Operator, Why Should I Attend?

  • Come discuss the marketing lessons learned from 2017, including but not limited to: SEO, Google Adwords, Facebook/Instagram ads, email marketing, trip review generation, waiver management, how to segment your customer database, social media tactics, reservation system state of affairs and more.
  • 2018 marketing strategies will be discussed in one-on-one and small group sessions to get a leg up for next season!
  • TOMIS product testing and feature requests will be prioritized. We want to hear from you about the features you need to have TOMIS serve as your digital marketing assistant in 2018 and beyond!
  • Our world-class advisory and data science team including executives from Microsoft, Amazon, and Facebook will be here to learn more about your businesses and how we can tailor our algorithms accordingly.
  • Oh, and the best BBQ in Missoula will be served Saturday night.
  • Digital Marketing Audits: led by TOMIS marketing managers, we will do small group break-outs to audit your existing website and state of affairs. Our team will also come prepared with reports on your digital marketing state of affairs to discuss during the event.
  • Best Practice Guides: you will receive copies of our best practice guides for blogging, social media strategy, and 2018 SEO trends and deliverables.
  • Meet, strategize and learn with other leading tour operators around the country. We are building a tribe and it is invaluable to learn from other businesses about what is working and what is not.
