Save the Date! Annual FLTA Holiday Party

Seasons greetings are right around the corner and before you know it, everyone will be sending holiday cheer. As a highly anticipated annual event, the FLTA staff and Board of Directors invite our partner businesses to join us for our annual holiday party. Please save the date to join us, Tuesday, December 16th for the holiday party. More details will be released as we get closer to the date, but we ask that you save time in the late afternoon and evening to join us for this celebration! This party is highly attended and is a great opportunity to network. We invite you to join us as we meet and greet with other area business professionals and area legislators (so be sure to bring business cards!), enjoy a wonderful spread of food and drink, and THANK YOU for your continued business support for a successful year. We look forward to seeing you, catching up with you, and saying thank you in December! This party will also serve as an opportunity to get a final look and proof of the 2015 Finger Lakes regional travel guide.

Request for Door Prizes for the Holiday Party

At the annual holiday party, FLTA likes to provide a little fun by raffling off door prizes generously provided by our partner businesses, to those in attendance at the party. If you have an interest in donating a door prize for the holiday party, the FLTA staff and Board of Directors would appreciate your offer very much. FLTA is always looking for new and creative ways to bring a new visitor to your business who will hopefully be converted into your next loyal customer! Feel free to contact FLTA Office Manager, Karen Colizzi Noonan or call the office at 315-536-7488 to discuss what door prizes might work best and to coordinate an offer. Thank you in advance for your help!

Add Your Holiday Events, Promotions, Coupons, and More to FingerLakes.org

Shoppers are always looking for deals, holiday events, and things to do in the Finger Lakes throughout the fall and holiday season. Let them know what's going on at your business! If your business has a holiday event, be sure to post it to the FingerLakes.org calendar of events for visitors and locals to find out about. If you'd like to place a coupon to promote throughout the holiday shopping season, contact the FLTA office and for only $100 you can have a coupon on the Coupons Page all year! This coupon can be changed as often as you'd like. Be sure to also keep adding Packages, sharing offers you've collaborated on with another FLTA partner and post any specials you may have at your business on the Promotions page. All of these postings can be done through your partner account on FingerLakes.org with the exception of the coupon. FLTA is always pulling promotional information about area businesses from FingerLakes.org so adding new content frequently is highly recommended. Feel free to be in touch with FLTA's Jessica Robideau about any marketing questions you may have.
