Meeting-goers want to be tourists too. However, because of the time crunch conference attendees face, they must be different than the typical tourists.
That’s why some are looking to limit their tourist time to a singular attraction and show organizers will support the effort. Some convention locations are naturally ready for this. For example, Disney World has easy-to-use Meeting & Convention Tickets and show your badge programs. Their options include discounted tickets, complimentary additional experiences, and partial-day tickets which are prefect for exploring the parks after the conference concludes (after 2pm and after 5pm are common choices). Other destinations provide equally exciting venues, museums, and cultural centers. Special experiences just need to be packaged in a way that makes sense.
