Alexandria 101

Event Navigation

The Alexandria Small Business Development Center and Visit Alexandria are celebrating National Travel & Tourism Week and Small Business Week with the presentation of Alexandria 101 – a free resource and tourism training for everyone from new front-line staff to long-time managers. Meet your peers and receive the latest information to help our visitors have an Extraordinary experience from the moment they book their trip to the time they check out of our hotels.

Who:  This session is a great update for everyone, but especially recent hires to help them easily tap the resources they need to answer any guest question.  This program is also important for Alexandria businesses outside of the tourism industry who often need to “sell” their location to potential employees and clients.

What: In one fast-paced hour, we’ll share the impact of the city’s tourism industry, Alexandria’s history, a dining scene update, top tours, hotels, parking and transportation information.  Participants will take away simple resource tools and contacts to use when they get back to their workplace.
