|AdventGX to Establish Speakers Bureau
|AdventGX will soon be launching its speakers bureau, expanding our service offering to include facilitation, coaching and speaking engagement. The Speakers Bureau will include experts on tourism, community, and business development, and will provide the resources to help meeting and conference planners find the ideal instructor, facilitator or speaker for a given topic.
|AdventGX Team Visits Nature Tourism Sites in Mexico
|AdventGX’s newest executive, Nacho Paez guided Jose Quintana and Andy Skadberg on a tour to sites throughout the state of Chihuahua, Mexico. The team’s adventure took them to some of Mexico’s most remote, scenic, and historic communities including a four hour drive through the forests and mountains of central Chihuahua and stops in Guadalupe y Calvo, the site where the first silver coins were minted in North America. Guadalupe y Calvo is also home to some of the continent’s oldest churches.
The team made the short but adventurous treak from Guadalupe y Calvo to Mohinora Peak which at more than 9,000 feet is the highest spot in the state of Chihuahua.
The last stop the team took was the town of Guachochi, and Sinforosa which is an exclusive access point to the southern part of the Copper Canyon. While visiting Sinforosa, the team took an airplane tour, flying through the canyon itself.
|AdventGX Begins work on Van Horn’s Comprehensive Planning Study
|AdventGX began work on a comprehensive planning study for the Town of Van Horn. The study involves conducting assessing the community’s infrastructure as well as other resources and devising a plan that will complement the ongoing efforts of Van Horn’s Economic Development Initiative. The study will provide a solid foundation for the continued support of the community’s vision for the future. Once the project is complete, AdventGX will present a comprehensive report and several detailed community maps to the Town of Van Horn. This will provide the Town’s leadership with practical information, goals, objectives, and specific recommendations that will lead the community twenty years into the future.
|AdventGX Partners with Far Flung Adventures to Launch Journey Builder Product
|Far Flung Outdoor Center in Terlingua, Texas has agreed to partner with AdventGX to launch the premier edition of our Journey Builder product for small tourism operators. Journey Builder is both a back office suite and marketing tool created for boutique tourism operators. By agreeing to work with AdventGX on the initial product launch, Far Flung is helping to refine the product and ensure that it meets this need of this specialized market.
|TEEX, AdventGX Launch Fort Stockton Marketing Assessment
|Joan Tatge, AdventGX Director of Communications and Deborah Webb of TEEX Technology and Economic Development Division made their initial visit to Fort Stockton to begin a marketing assessment that will establish the basis for a new marketing web presence for the community. Joan and Deborah worked with Kenda Furman, Fort Stockton Director of Tourism and visited the community’s numerous tourism attractions as part of the visit.
|AdventGX Conducts Van Horn Traveler Survey
|AdventGX is conducting a traveler survey in Van Horn, Texas to establish a baseline of traveler perceptions of Van Horn as well as gather information needed to help create a better experience for visitors to Van Horn. The survey is being conducted both through personal interviews and online. Results for the survey should be in by the end of the summer.
|AdventGX Interns Experience Van Horn’s Red Rock Ranch
|AdventGX interns enjoyed a four hour tour and hike at Van Horn’s Red Rock Ranch. The tour focuses on the geologic history of the region, and tourists get to view evidence of the native Americans that once inhabited the region. The interns climbed an exposure of precambrian rock, hiked to view a petroglyph and cooled their feet in a natural pool.
