Travel Classics Writers Conference October 2009 in Scottsdale, Arizona

Travel Classics West 2009
Pre- and Post-Conference Tour Suggestions

Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau
The Scottsdale Convention & Visitors Bureau welcomes your participation in the sixth annual Travel Classics West conference and we encourage you to take this opportunity to explore more of Scottsdale and the Grand Canyon state of Arizona.

We hope that you find the Sonoran Desert setting and your stay at the world-renowned Fairmont Scottsdale an inspirational complement to the exciting exchange of ideas that will take place during the conference. The Fairmont Scottsdale is a luxury property reflecting the beauty, warmth and charm of the Southwest. The resort is home to celebrity chef Michael Mina's BOURBON STEAK; the chic Stone Rose Lounge from New York-based nightclub impresario, Rande Gerber; the award-winning TPC Scottsdale, home of the infamous PGA FBR Open; and the celebrated Willow Stream Spa. We hope that you will find some time to take advantage of these amenities during your stay!

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. Below you'll find a wealth of information on Arizona destinations and area resorts as well as several story ideas that cover every kind of topic - from dining to Wild West adventures. So take some time to browse through these ideas that can serve as the building blocks to your itinerary.
