Did you know that Missoula, Montana, was named one of the 25 best towns EVER by Outside Magazine? Described by Outside, “Missoula has all the adventure a traveler could ask for, while also offering drool-worthy food and drink scenes, a kid-friendly environment, and a welcome mat to people of all backgrounds.”

Recently, Western Montana’s Glacier Country and Destination Missoula hosted a virtual meeting planner FAM tour of Western Montana and specifically Missoula, Montana, for meeting, convention and event planners. If you missed the invite in your email inbox, or if you’re feeling a little FOMO (fear of missing out) by not attending, we have you covered.

Grab a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage and take an hour to get answers to your FAM questions by hitting this link to see why Western Montana and Missoula make the perfect location for corporate retreats, association meetings, regional conferences and events. Western Montana’s Glacier Country and Destination Missoula walk you through the ease of accessibility to Missoula via Missoula Montana Airport (MSO) and the plethora of new direct flights from major cities that have been added this past year (yes, during a pandemic—thanks Alaska, American, Allegiant, Delta and United Airlines). And, of course, Destination Missoula lays out the meeting space and hotel room offerings in downtown Missoula and outlying areas. We explain the advantages of meeting in Missoula including the fact that there is no statewide sales tax in Montana and that the lodging tax is only 8% (your attendees will love that). You will also get a behind-the-scenes tour of some culinary and cultural hot spots, perfect for off-site venues. Add in the fact that Montana is a state a lot of people have not visited before but is always described as being “on their bucket list” (cue the intrigue and attendance building), then get that RFP ready to send over and see what Missoula can do for your next meeting or event.

Missoula is home to local breweries, including Kettlehouse Brewing Company.

We hope you enjoy the Virtual FAM of Missoula. If you need additional information about Missoula or Western Montana, visit our Meeting Planner website or reach out to Western Montana’s Glacier Country. I’m always here to help.
