The plans for this year's conference look to be the most exciting yet.

In addition to the innkeeper conference, on Sunday, November 9, aspiring innkeepers will participate in an all-day workshop with seasoned bed and breakfast innkeeper/consultants. Would-be and newly established innkeepers will learn from a variety of topics encompassing the bed and breakfast innkeeping business. Topics will include: Introduction to the B&B Industry, Business Planning, Daily Operations, Marketing Tips, Business and Policies, and Preparing for Success. The Aspiring Innkeepers' seminar will include a take home workbook. Coordinated and hosted by Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers of Colorado founders, Sallie and Welling Clark of Holden House Bed & Breakfast Inn, it will be an entire day packed full of practical business tips and seasoned advice.  Aspiring Innkeepers will want to attend both days November 9-10 to reap the rewards of all the information packed and networking opportunities to make your B&B dreams come true!

On Sunday, November 9, BBIC members & guests will be invited to an optional inn-tour of area B&Bs coordinated by the Black Dog Inn and Anniversary Inn in Estes Park.  BBIC members will want to arrive early to participate in the Golden Muffin Award contest and attend the Welcome/Awards Dinner hosted by BBIC President Karen Cullen and Jay Rohrer from 1892 Victoria's Keep Bed & Breakfast. Karen and Jay will present special industry awards and report on BBIC activities and announce plans for the future of the organization on the evening of Sunday, November 9.  This---all in the gorgeous setting on Lake Estes, Colorado!

On Monday, November 10, the Bed & Breakfast Innkeepers of Colorado (BBIC) Conference gets underway. "We're really excited about this year's conference line-up including the Aspiring Innkeepers Day", said BBIC Vice President and conference coordinator Sandee Rogers. "Our Colorado innkeepers won't want to miss the educational opportunities, meeting, networking, and vendor displays. The conference will feature special presentations including media marketing, promotions and Colorado law updates. It's also a great opportunity to meet and greet fellow innkeepers from all over the state", Rogers added. 

The trade show will offer plenty of opportunity to talk to suppliers and vendors for the B&B and hospitality industry. Special speakers will present on issues important to the B&B industry including surviving the IRS and B&B accounting techniques, using creative publicity and earned media opportunites to get your inn noticed, Internet marketing and design, the future of Colorado tourism, and more.
