Outer Banks Tourism Summit
The Outer Banks Visitors Bureau hosted the 1st annual Outer Banks Tourism Summit on May 7th and 8th, 2013 in Avon. The purpose of the Summit was to bring together industry partners from all over Dare County to learn about ways to improve our business practices and raise the standard of the Outer Banks vacation industry.
A turnout of close to 100 individuals gathered at the Koru Beach Klub for what proved to be a valuable and positive event for our local industry partners. Among the topics discussed were marketing trends, networking strategies and imminent issues facing the Outer Banks tourist and vacation industry. With five staff members in attendance, Hatteras Realty capitalized on this opportunity and is already looking for ways to integrate new ideas into our business. Aside from the information extracted from the presentations and the networking opportunites, attendees also enjoyed wonderful food and breathtaking views from the venue! Hatteras Realty thanks the Visitors Bureau for creating this annual event and for its continued attention to Hatteras Island. We can’t wait for next year’s Tourism Summit.
Additionally, Hatteras Realty was proud to host key organizers and presenters in one of our premier Oceanside homes, Jamman Again. Thank you again to owners Jeff and Mary Mortellaro for your generous donation of your home!
