The Shreveport-Bossier Attractions Association will hold its next quarterly seminar, entitled "Customizing Your Guests' Experiences" at the end of the month.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m., Monday, June 30 at the Shreveport Little Theatre on 811 Margaret Place.

 Local tourism attractions ranging from museums and galleries to hotels are invited to learn how to create memorable guest experiences for visitors.
The free seminar will be led by Julia Foley and Bonne Summers of Shreveport-based event planning service Apex Events.

Foley, co-owner of Apex Events said, "The goal of this workshop is to help attractions create an experience that tells their story. We want them to think about how you create a sense of place, so that when someone walks in the door of your attraction, they immediately know what's going on."

Attendees to this seminar who have also completed a marketing plan can apply for a grant of up to $1,000 to implement their ideas to customize their guests' experiences.

Lunch will also be provided. To register for the seminar or for more information, call (318) 222-9391.  Advance registration is required. Seating is limited.
