Design on a Dime, Main Street Style-Not an architect, and don't have access to low-cost design assistance? Storefront design is vital to commercial district revitalization, but often confusing for Main Street managers without a design background. Adding to the challenge are the marketing needs and tastes of individual business owners. This webinar will provide the basics, plus great tools to help guide both merchants and contractors toward preservation-sensitive design.

Why tourists Shop: How to Become a powerful Heritage travel Destination-Brochures and tourism agencies "introduce" our Main Streets to the traveler indirectly. But how can we reach them directly? Most importantly, how can we create an "authentic" visitor experience that will translate into more feet on the street and in the stores? Learn a new way of looking at the visitor experience, and explore marketing venues that can really put your town on the heritage travel map.
