June 18 – Opening Downtown Doors
Special downtown events and festivals offer unique opportunities. But how do we translate that added sidewalk traffic into new relationships, new customers, and new business? This session will explore how to encourage individuals attending festivals and other events to open new downtown doors. You will leave with tips, tools, and strategies to build community connections and customers.
