MARQUETTE –Travel Marquette celebrates the release of their full schedule of events for the 2017 OurVoice: Travel Marquette program.

OurVoice invites the hospitality and business community to actively engage in tourist activities in Marquette County and continuously provide education to assist them in maximizing the experience of tourists. By experiencing the area first-hand we share OurVoice more naturally, enthusiastically and specifically with guests.

The annual program hosts four bus tours, taking attendees on a variety of activities including restaurants, museums, event destinations and popular landmarks. Each month, the program will host an educational or interactive learning session in the Travel Marquette office to keep people up-to-date on trends, events, marketing tips and other valuable resources.

Classes include topics like We Are Hospitality, We Are Events and We Are Foodies.

OurVoice: We Are Lake Superior is the next tour date on July 25. It will feature lunchtime lakeshore views, history, water sport demonstrations and more. Registration is free and open to all business owners, managers, and staff of Marquette County hospitality and retail organizations.
