The Town Leadership wants to learn about the diverse range of businesses here in Sturbridge. They also want to have a productive and honest dialogue with owners about how their business is doing and what the Town can do to help. Business leaders can invite Town staff and elected officials to their business for a tour of the facilities and a discussion of their business. Interested parties can contact the Economic Development and Tourism Coordinator for more information or to arrange a tour.
The Town of Sturbridge wants to highlight all of the various tourist related venues in Town. To that end the Town has created a monthly events newsletter that is shared with local hotels, restaurants, merchants and with regional partners to everyone aware of what opportunities are out there. These newsletters are published at the start of each month; those who wish to participate should email the name of their event, the time and location, and provide a short description for the event to the Economic Development and Tourism Coordinator the week before the last day of the month. All this information is then added to our newsletter, uploaded to our event calendar online at www.visitsturbridge.org and added to our Twitter at @visitsturbridge.
Sturbridge Business Breakfasts
In an effort to have a continuous dialogue with business leaders, the Town offers business breakfasts where topics of importance are discussed in an open forum. It is also an opportunity for businesses to voice their ideas, thoughts and concerns directly to appointed and elected officials in Town. Information about these events is pushed out a month ahead of each breakfast on this website.
