How Destination Marketers Can Build A Strong Shoulder Season This Fall

Noble Horvath

Co-Founder of The Abbi Agency, a digital engagement firm providing outreach strategies to travel destinations, tech companies and B2B brands.

Right now is a dangerous time for destination marketers. Many outdoors-oriented destinations have experienced a remarkably busy summer — especially remarkable, given all the concern about Covid-19 — and it’s tempting to think that the momentum will carry over into the autumn months as well. That’s dangerous thinking, and it could put the long-term financial health of destinations and individual properties at risk.

Two factors are at play: First, the autumn shoulder season is typically tough for many outdoors-oriented destinations, whether they’re in the mountains, along the seashore or nestled in some other attractive spot. Summer vacations are over, kids are back in school and the weather sometimes can be unpredictable for outdoor activities.

The second factor is that this fall season could be particularly challenging. Nearly one

Casinos are purposely created to encourage spending money, and The Strip was built to house the biggest and the best gaming rooms. In fact, the average person spends $200 to $250 a day in Las Vegas.

“What if my actions are coming back to haunt me?” Gravitas Ventures has released an official trailer for an indie horror film called Don’t Look Back, marking the feature directorial debut of a filmmaker named Jeffrey Reddick, who created the Final Destination franchise and wrote the scripts for all of the sequels, too.

SALEM — Want to know what’s going on in the Witch City this fall without handling a printed guide or going face to face with volunteers? There’s an app for that

Destination Salem, a tourism driver and marketing arm in the city, has launched a smartphone app that centralizes info on events, restaurants and lodging.

The app is also built to make life in the city easier under the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Kate Fox, executive director of Destination Salem. That includes blog posts and information on the latest restrictions in the city, and — perhaps most importantly — push notifications.

“If, in October, the parking garage gets full, or we’re looking to disperse people who
