A well known travel expert was speaking about bed and breakfasts in Steinbach Saturday.
Pamela Lanier, along with Bed and Breakfast of Manitoba, was hosting a conference at Mennonite Heritage Village. Lanier says there was some great discussion generated from some of her advice.
"Focus on your strengths and go with your passions. We had a break-out session that included eight different topics that small lodgings could focus on, such as family-friendly accommodations and activities, culinary and agriculture tourism, and of course romance, which is the backbone of the bed and breakfast industry."
She notes around 100 people attended, and everyone, including herself, learned quite a bit.
Lanier is the author of nine different travel guides, and her most popular one has sold two and a half million copies world wide. She is also the host of ecogo.org.
