Fair Attendance Attracting the Millennials
How do you attract the “Millennial Generation” to the County Fair?
I will share our experiences at the Jackson County Fair and how we turned it around by creating experiences for the next Generation. I’ll also share real world “Millennials” stories and misconceptions and I’ll speak to removing the label “Millennials” and instead focus on “TNG – The Next Generation“
Speakers: Jim Teece.
Moderated by: Mark Koberstein-Josephine County Fair
I have been asked to give a talk at the Klamath Idea on January 23, 2019 – The event runs from 5:30 to 8pm atMC’s on Main is located at 617 Main St. in downtown Klamath Falls and I’m just a small part of it. I’ll be speaking about Project A as well as all my other companies and what it’s like to run them in Southern Oregon.
The Klamath IDEA is a community initiative committed to creating a thriving entrepreneurial culture in Klamath and Lake Counties here in Oregon.

I have been asked to speak again (my third year in a row) at the Medford Forum. To change it up and provide a smooth transition to future speakers I will be doing a talk show style talk with Carey Cahill, Director of Business Development, Hunter Communications. We will discuss Future Proofing Southern Oregon and checking in on all the progress that we are all making together. I’ll also talk about my 3 future projects that I will be focusing on.
I have been asked to present “Future Proofing your Chamber and your Community.” to the Western Association of Chamber Executives. I will give my future proofing concept but instead of being about fairs, it will be about the work we have done in Ashland and with the Ashland Chamber of Commerce.
