Familiarization Tours

The Wyoming Office of Tourism’s (WOT) Visitor Services department organizes Familiarization (FAM) tours in different counties in Wyoming annually.

The purpose of the Visitor Services FAM tours are to provide additional training opportunities for visitor services staff and industry partners through a condensed and focused program.  This FAM is open to any frontline employee in the Wyoming tourism industry who has consistent interaction with visitors to our state. 

This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Wyoming and encourage visitors to increase their length of stay in our state.

Upcoming FAMs

Please check back next year for details on our 2018 Visitor Services FAM.
