Group Tour and International Leads


Glacier Country has been active in marketing to group tour operators and international free independent travel (FIT) markets for many years.  We have a Tourism Sales Manager who specializes in these markets along with “weddings and reunions” and “meetings and conventions.”  For businesses who commit to working with these markets they can be a great way to diversify your customer base especially in times of economic challenge or when trying to increase shoulder season business.

All leads generated at travel shows using bed tax funds by Glacier Country are required to be available to all bed tax collecting entities within Glacier Country.  Please make every effort to follow up on these.  It is direct contact from businesses like you that will persuade operators to plan trips to Western Montana.

Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to these leads, follow up is key!

Please feel free to contact the office with any questions.
