The Putnam County Business Council is hosting its First Quarter Breakfast for 2020 with an interesting topic. “Helping Businesses Make the Tourism Connection.”

The breakfast will be held on March 24th from 7:45 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the Putnam County Golf Course in Mahopac. The agenda will focus on “Tourism for Profit.” Helping to make the connection between economic growth and tourism, the event will feature a special presentation and engage tourism and economic experts who will be on hand to provide evidence-based data and proven strategies to educate businesses on maximizing opportunities associated with visitors and tourists coming into Putnam County.

It seems to me there is a ton of opportunity for real estate agents with the tourists that are coming into the county. You have a captured audience who, when visiting Putnam, are usually in love with the beauty and tranquility of Putnam County. With our natural resources, commercial recreation and the sure beauty of our environment, I am sure that many would consider a move here or even a second summer or weekend home in Putnam County.

I encourage all agents to attend to learn or create some opportunities to market yourself to these potential buyers. There will also be some interesting facts and statistics on Putnam County which is important knowledge for an agent to have and to be able to speak on intelligently.
