The Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau launched the first-ever Be a Fan Ambassador Program in 2018 to overwhelming success. The program is designed to create superfans of the area and showcase the importance of tourism and customer service excellence to a thriving Shreveport-Bossier economy.
Participants include the hospitality industry, locals and civic leaders. Tour day starts with a short orientation at the Tourist Bureau offices. Then participants board a bus and tour the city. A fun quiz for prizes will be given at the end of the day, and certificates will be awarded to those who complete the program. Participants will be added to an email database and kept up to speed on upcoming things to do, volunteer opportunities and industry happenings.
