All Skill Levels

Spark Orlando is just a few short weeks away. Can you believe it — we sure can’t!

If you are unfamiliar with this event, Spark is our annual conference designed to help you, our amazing tour and activity operators, succeed.

Attendees will learn from industry experts, hear success stories directly from other FareHarbor clients, and gain access to countless networking opportunities with their peers. 

We could give you a hundred reasons to attend this event… but to get started, here are seven reasons you must head to Spark Orlando this October 8th and 9th. 

1. It’s Free!

Spark is a completely free conference (and who doesn’t love free?!), aside from a fully refundable $100 deposit that will be returned to each attendee at the time of check-in. 

2. 1.5 Days of Original Content

For the first time ever, Spark will be one and a half days long, with no repeat content! Beginning at 12pm on Sunday, October 8th, you can start meeting with your peers, learning from our industry specialists, and saying hello to the FareHarbor team (who are so excited to see you IRL!). 

Then, our programming on Monday, October 9th starts bright and early at 8am where attendees can enjoy more breakout sessions, our keynote speaker, Dr. Jon Kedrowski, and a full day of connection and fun!

3. More Advanced and Trending Topics

You asked and we listened! Get ready to learn about the latest tools you should be taking advantage of as well as breaking industry trends you can use to increase your bookings and improve operations.

A few standout session topics:

  • Artificial Intelligence: Get to know all of the essential AI tools (like ChatGPT!) that you should be using to streamline your operations.
  • Goal setting and actionable tactics to build a better business: Our keynote speaker will dive into his experiences summiting Everest and other peaks — literally and figuratively. You will learn how he used the same skill sets to master the mountains and launch a successful business.  
  • TikTok: Uncover how you can use short-form video to boost your online presence AND your reservations. 

4. Get Your Problem Solved on the Spot

New this year introducing the FareHarbor Support Bar! Ask all of your questions face-to-face with a FareHarbor expert. Inquire about your Dashboard setup, learn more about the FareHarbor Distribution Network, find out how to get integrated with Google Things to do — any area where you need a helping hand is fair game!

“One thing I think people don’t really get is how much FareHarbor wants you to succeed. When you get to meet with the FareHarbor team, it’s so fun because they know who you are, they’re excited about your business, and they’re excited to show you all the new ways you can sell more tickets and grow your business.”

5. Two Networking Receptions

What is better than one end-of-day reception?… Two of course! That’s right, Sunday and Monday will both end with an informal, exciting celebration for you to mingle, laugh, and connect with fellow operators and the FareHarbor crew. 

6. Provide Feedback Directly to the FareHarbor Product and Leadership Teams

Spark Orlando is the best way to get some face time with the leaders of FareHarbor. Tell them about the feature you’re dying to see. Ask them what’s on the horizon. Maybe even tell them your best dad joke! 

We can’t advance without the feedback and ideas from our tour and activity operators across the world. Join us at Spark for your chance to be a part of the changes to come.

7. Meet Partners and Vendors Who can Improve Your Business

Finally, it wouldn’t be Spark without our amazing partners and vendors. We have DOUBLE the booths from last year which means you have double the chances to find the partners and softwares that can work well with your business. 

From photo marketing with Fotaflo to waiver programs with Wherewolf and connections with Viator — you’ll be leaving with slew of new ways you can streamline your operations. 

We hope to see you at Spark — register now to secure your spot!

“Let’s face it; growth isn’t just about doing more. It’s about doing better. With the expertise of industry titans and FareHarbor’s seasoned veterans, you’ll have the tools to ignite your growth and propel your business to new heights. Oh, and the cherry on top? You can start implementing these strategies right at the heart of Spark! We’re going to make sure we’re helping y’all knock-out impactful action-items while you’re in Orlando!”
