Aspiring Innkeeper Workshop

  • This event has passed.

February 26 @ 8:00 am - February 27 @ 12:00 pm

| $99 - $150

Interested in running a small lodging property? Inn, B&B, Farm Stay, Cottages or Cabins are all great ways to host the traveling public and provide a memorable experience to guests. This workshop will set the foundation for you to move forward in the unique small lodging business. There will be a focus on Inns or B&Bs, but anyone looking to enter into this market place is encouraged to attend. The workshop, taught by Peter Scherman of The B&B Team, will apply to opening a business anywhere, not exclusive to Virginia.

Attendees for this one day workshop should plan on being at the class site by 8:00 AM on Sunday. We will start at 8:30 AM and run until 5:30 PM. We will have dinner as a group Sunday for those who want to join us for some casual time together (dinner is not included in registration fee). Attendees are encouraged to spend a night at an area B&B or at the Linden Row Inn, but this is not required. On Monday, attendees will be invited to sign-up for one-on-one sessions with The B&B Team from 9:00AM till 1:00PM. From 10:00AM till 12:00PM on Monday attendees will have exclusive access to our vendor fair. Once you register for the workshop, StayVA will contact you to make sure you are able to take advantage of all the events on Monday.

Attendees are invited to register for our annual conference after the workshop from 12:00PM Monday till 4:00PM Tuesday. Go here to learn more.
