The Northeast Tennessee Tourism Association will continue to offer a series of short-term rental workshops in October for individuals interested, or that currently own/operate vacation rental properties.
The series includes an opportunity for participants to learn more about vacation rental markets, laws and regulations, customer service, proper cleaning guidelines, as well as how to get started with rentals and enhance current properties. The workshops will also offer a question-and-answer session with local short-term rental experts in each area, and an opportunity to hear from local tourism bureaus.
“Our workshops this past spring were in high demand, and we’re excited to offer this series again in different communities that have been noted for growth in the accommodations sector. Northeast Tennessee has a thriving short-term rental market due to our proximity to outdoor opportunities, as well as internationally known attractions and urban landscapes,” Executive Director Alicia Phelps said. “Our hope is to connect our current lodging properties and equip those who are thinking about investing in the short-term rental market to showcase our area at its best.”
Registration is required as the workshops will be held from 6-9 p.m. at the following locations:
— October 19: SquareOne located at 211 S. Elm Ave., Erwin. Joint Economic Development Board of Unicoi County has generously covered registration costs for up to 20 individuals.
— October 20: Kingsport Chamber of Commerce located at 400 Clinchfield St., #100, Kingsport. Visit Kingsport has generously covered registration costs for up to 20 individuals.
Registration is required, and open to those interested in, or currently own/operate vacation rental properties. To register, contact 423-262-0238.
