Who should attend?
We’ve got you covered with all of the above and more!
The B&B Business Building conference represents an opportunity for innkeepers to discover new ways to grow their businesses with interactive sessions. At a typical conference, you listen to several speakers, take pages of notes and try to remember what you wanted to implement after you get back home. At this conference, you’ll receive an official Conference Workbook that will contain all of the important highlights and notes from the training, fill in the blank forms, and tips on how to implement your ideas after you leave. It’s not a seminar, but an interactive event that will be filled with practical, repeatable strategies and tactics to promote your bed and breakfast inn.

Fully Booked Inn Gives Back
Education is one of our passions and we love to support students seeking higher education. We’ve selected the Delta Research and Educational Foundation (DREF) as our non-profit partner for the B&B Business Building Conference. A portion of the proceeds from the conference will be donated to for use in providing college scholarships to graduating high school seniors.
Bring a spouse, partner, friend or staff member for a nominal fee
We know that you probably don’t manage your inn alone. Chances are, you share responsibilities with a spouse, partner, friend or family member. For that reason, we have arranged for you to register a second person for just the cost of printing the conference materials!
Our “She’s really serious!” outrageous guarantee
Events like this have been offered at fees of $249 or more per person, but we’re offering expert training at a fraction of that cost. The goal of this conference is for every attendee to come away with ideas that when implemented will add at least $1000 to their bottom line. We’re so passionate about it that we’re willing to put our own money on the line. If you can’t add $1000 to your bottom line in 2015 after implementing the ideas you learn at the conference, we’ll cheerfully refund your registration fee.
