GoNorth is excited to present the following program to assist you in attaining more international visitors to your tourism business and the Adirondacks. Together with our partners, The Wild Center, the Saratoga Convention and Tourism Bureau, the Warren County Division of Tourism, The North Country Chamber of Commerce, and the Adirondack Regional Tourism Council, we would like for you to take the time to come and listen to what others are doing and what can be done to attract more international visitors.

As an example of what can be done to help attract the international market to the Adirondacks, this group of partners have come together to create an itinerary project called GoNorth. More information about this new initiative will also be shared at the meeting.
