Come and learn how you can benefit from inbound international visitors. How do they get here, which international markets are targeted and why and what efforts are under way to keep driving the demand? Portland and the entire state of Oregon are welcoming more and more visitors from around the world. Learn how giving excellent customer service to international visitors differs from providing excellent customer service to domestic visitors. Learn hands-on tips and background information on the cultural differences within Oregon’s primary international markets. Billie Moser, Travel Portland’s vice president of international tourism, will discuss her department’s marketing efforts and the international supply chain for hotels and tour operators to plug into and for our industry to understand.  Developed for visitor-facing staff and managers at hospitality businesses including hotels, restaurants, retail spaces, attractions and tour operators.
