|Alliance Tours, Seminars, and Town Hall Meetings
The Alliance works with its supporting members to enhance their familiarization tours (FAM tours), site visits and similar events. Our involvement is of proven benefit to both the host organization and the planners in attendance—hosts and attendees form real, long lasting bonds that often lead to productive business relationships.

Before the event, we can boost attendance by inviting our members and others on our mailing lists and by promoting the event on our web site. Importantly, we can screen and qualify attendees by selective invitations and other means.
Also before the event, we can conduct an online seminar for the host CVB, hotels and attractions, building or refreshing their understanding of the military reunions market and its special wants and needs.
At the event itself, we can conduct brief, high-powered seminars for everyone involved. They "break the ice," enhance the development of relationships, and give everyone a valuable takeaway. One popular seminar is the Town Hall Meeting, an open discussion session for reunion planners, hotels, attractions, and others in attendance at the event. Another feature is our constantly-updated Military Reunion Handbook, a copy of which can be provided to each attendee.
Our seminars have proven to be extremely valuable to all who attend them. "I've never had the chance to talk about these things before," is a typical response from a reunion planner, "this is the best day I've had in a long, long time!" Hotel and CVB representatives say things like "This was the most interested and qualified group of reunion planners we've ever seen," and "I really learned a lot about reunion groups and their needs."
After the event, a permanent record remains on our web site and in the minds of the attendees, promoting its memory forever in the military reunions community.
