The vision for the Cultural Heritage Alliance for Tourism, Inc. is to become a national model initiative for increasing tourism readiness, tourism inclusion and engagement for cultural and heritage community assets throughout the State of Florida and other states.
CHAT seeks to partner with CVBs, Cultural Affairs, Cultural and Heritage Tourism organizations, City and County agencies to invest in our efforts to enhance the business and tourism capacity of small businesses and attractions in their local communities. We work to prepare them to actively participate in their local tourism ecosystems. Our tourism marketing and tourism readiness programs help them to position their businesses and destinations to attract foot traffic and dollars from locals, domestic and international tourists. Upon completion of our programs, they have the opportunity to join their local Cultural Heritage Alliance Tours' network. Current CHAT networks includes CHAT Miami, CHAT Broward and CHAT Palm Beach. We look forward to expanding and partnering with other CVBs, cities and counties across the State and in other countries.
Through our Cultural Heritage Alliance Tours' networks, we serve as a tour operator, tour developer, business development and marketing partner to our alliance members. Through our efforts, we strive to increase inclusion and engagement of tour operators, tour guides, attractions and small businesses in Florida's tourism industry as well as fuel economic development and sustainability in heritage neighborhoods and multicultural communities.
Each CHAT network is comprised of transportation operators, tour guides, attractions and small businesses. CHAT partners with them to curate, market and book educational, interactive walking and bus tours of cultural, heritage and urban contemporary experiences for locals, domestic and international tourists.
We welcome the opportunity to start a CHAT network in your city or county. Learn more about CHAT at www.chatsouthflorida.com or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
