Each year I think – this is the year I will have quarterly newsletters and every year I am lucky to get one out at this time of year. So here we are again – November and I am getting to it.
First – YES the weekend training about how to buy/run a Bed and Breakfast is on! The room is booked (and paid for) I have one couple already signed up for and PAID. So after a number of delays here we go. Date February 28 to March 1, 2015. Right now I am tweaking the information based on what the previous attendees (and now running Bed and breakfasts) have said to me and how the operations/marketing has changed over the past 2 years. To me, marketing has gotten easier; I thought it was easy 8 years ago, now even better.
Here are some of the things that will make will be discussed which are new topics
In the summer of 2015 the PanAm Games are coming to Southern Ontario, is this going to have an impact on Tourism. Easy answer how can it not. But will it be enough to raise rates in the Niagara Region.
Third party booking sites, what has been the impact and how can we manage them.
Cash or credit card.
New list of suppliers and their offerings for Bed and break

Gerald & I want to thank you for a very informative weekend. You did an excellent job organizing and presenting the workshop. It was so nice to meet and chat with other perspective b&b owners. Seems we all have lots & lots of questions. You have more patience than you give yourself credit for LOL We look forward to doing business with you in the near future Thanks again
