[IDEA] One-Shot Travel Expo

“A one-shot (meaning, you’re not obliged to organize another tour in the future), let’s-figure-out-the-schedule-once-we-get-enough-people-interested, I’m-only-sharing-this-experience-once travel expo.”

Fortune Island, March 2009 - Remix

Let’s talk about travel options you’ll never encounter under normal circumstances. With you as tour operator, you provide us with interesting options. Are you finally ready to share this secret with the world? Would you like to improve people’s perception of your neighborhood? Is it time to find people crazy enough to join you in your secret island?

Interested parties shall be asked to design a tour based on the following parameters:

  • Duration wise, it should not exceed 2D/1N – the point is have everything in bite-sized pieces.
  • Determine the size of the group you can handle.
  • If it’s an out-of-town trip, try to include accommodations as much as possible. Food is a bonus.
  • Transportation is optional, unless it’s a secret island tour, then you MUST find a way to get us from one point to the other.
  • Thinking small is not a bad thing.
  • Putting all these elements together should NOT stress you out.
  • You can either be strict or flexible with the tour date. What’s important is that you get enough sign-ups during the event.

Then we’ll give you your own booth in the venue for cheap. Prepare the following:

  • A one-page brochure of your tour.
  • Pricing information.
  • …that’s pretty much it.

Here are some ideas:

  • Have a curated walking tour of your neighborhood. Foodie stops are a given but interesting standalone tour of small stores add a curious element to it.
  • A no-holds-barred food fight in some farm in Batangas? You provide the pie and fruit. Complete with hosing facilities of course.
  • A scenic roadtrip to nowhere while you treat your “clients” to an impromptu music appreciation class in your car. Lunch is served after.
