You Are Maine Tourism and we want to hear from you!

 Regional Tourism Assessments – The Maine Office of Tourism (MOT) is working with the international organization Destinations International to help DownEast Acadia tourism industry members explore our internal strengths and weaknesses through a formal survey and assessment.

The surveys are based upon variables representing destination strengths and weaknesses, and community support and engagement.  Once completed, we will receive a report highlighting the region’s strong points and areas where improvements can be focused.

 The 3-hour workshop is a public forum for tourism industry, community and market leaders to 1) gain an understanding of the process, 2) complete the survey and 3) discuss key factors that could help the region be a stronger destination.

Please help us invite tourism-related businesses, individuals, municipal and community leaders, politicians, economic and community development organizations, parks and recreation managers, local producers, artists and craftspeople, tour guides, seafood retailers, events coordinators and museum/historical society directors – we want to hear from anyone who contributes to our diverse tourism industry!
