Pre- & Post-Conference Tours

Dear Editors and Writers,

On behalf of the Arizona Office of Tourism and the Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, we would like to thank you for participating in the fourth annual Travel Classics West, November 1-4, 2007 in Scottsdale, Arizona. It is our honor and privilege to sponsor such a prestigious event, and judging from the wonderful caliber of editors and writers scheduled to attend this year, it is sure to be the most successful conference yet.

Located in the heart of the Sonoran Desert, Scottsdale's beautiful fall weather and gorgeous scenery will once again serve as the perfect backdrop for the conference. In addition to the incredible professional networking opportunities available at Travel Classics West, you will also get the chance to discover all that Arizona has to offer, from cultural and culinary treasures to natural and modern wonders.

In past years, many participants have commented that they wished they had extended their trip to explore more of Scottsdale and the entire state. Because your conference time will be very focused on business, we encourage you to get a better perspective on what makes Arizona so unique by working with us to coordinate a pre- or post-conference tour around the state. Whether you spend time exploring Scottsdale in more depth, or you head out-of-town, we are more than happy to assist you in developing an itinerary that meets your specific needs. Please note we will not be organizing any formal group tours, as we find it more effective to create personalized itineraries that reflect your individual interests and publications.

This year's conference will feature a wonderful and diverse line-up of partners from around the state. You will likely be receiving lots of great press kits and invitations from these sponsors, and we encourage you to use this information to gather ideas and generate itinerary suggestions. To coordinate your actual itineraries, we ask you to go through our two organizations, as this will give you even more flexibility and options to meet your story needs.

For your convenience, CLICK HERE for a list of story ideas and itinerary suggestions. We also encourage you to visit our press rooms at http://www.ArizonaGuide.com and http://www.ScottsdalePressRoom.com. If you would like to discuss a pre- or post-conference tour, please contact Jacki Mieler from the Arizona Office of Tourism or Laura McMurchie from the Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau.

In addition, we would like to invite you to attend the Arizona Media Marketplace on November 1. The Marketplace will give you the unique opportunity to meet with tourism representatives from around the state. We will follow up with more information regarding this exciting event at a later date.

We look forward to working with you on your pre- or post-conference itinerary and meeting you in Scottsdale this November for the fourth annual Travel Classics West.

All the best,
Jacki Mieler
Arizona Office of Tourism
