This year, ICORT is being reimagined! Rather than two days of in-person educational sessions, Idaho Tourism is hosting a series of online workshops tailored to helping destination marketing organizations and tourism businesses create a roadmap to recovery and stability.

The workshops will be facilitated by Coraggio Group, a travel and tourism consulting agency based in Portland, Oregon, that provides strategic insights to tourism organizations at every scale — from rural communities like Visit Casper and Mendocino County to metropolitan destinations, state tourism agencies and tourism attractions.

Why You Should Attend
Attendees will learn to:

  • evaluate current organizational impacts and strategies.
  • identify key indicators for your organization or business that will signal a transition into a new phase of recovery and design a process and cadence for tracking these indicators internally.
  • formulate decision criteria for choosing or rejecting strategies.
  • prioritize strategies that address challenges.
  • build a roadmap that helps lead your organization or business back to economic stability.
  • develop a plan for ongoing two-way communication with regional collaborators.
  • design a system to monitor change in your region and learn how to use it to adjust course.
  • activate your new recovery road map.
  • lead your organization into a new normal.

Click to Register

  • Sessions will be held virtually on Zoom. You will receive the Zoom meeting details after registering.
  • Please be prepared to attend all four weeks of your assigned breakout session as the workshops are cumulative and build as you advance through the sessions.
  • The facilitator requests each attendee use their own computer rather than sharing a computer with others. This ensures the best experience and will allow each attendee to use the included polling and interactive workspace software.
  • Pre-workshop preparation is needed. Necessary worksheets will be shared with registrants on September 8.
