Tourism Resource Assistance Center (TRAC)
Visit North Carolina's Tourism Resource Assistance Center (TRAC), a community-based training program designed to help small tourism-related businesses, takes place multiple times a year in cities and towns across the state. Tourism-related businesses in the area around the TRAC meeting have the opportunity to work with Visit North Carolina staff to learn more about its research, development and marketing services, and discuss best practices in reaching travelers, the media and increasing tourism visitation and spending.
There is no charge to attend, no reservation is required, and there are no PowerPoint presentations. This is a come-when-you-can/stay-as-long-as-you'd-like event opportunity for all tourism-related businesses to meet one-on-one with program managers to discuss better ways to promote their property or event. TRAC brings Visit North Carolina's program managers to local communities to discuss the nuts and bolts of working with the organization. This invaluable program is designed to help tourism-related businesses engage more fully with programs offered by Visit North Carolina and its partners.
