ELEVATOR PITCH LUNCHEON

WHY IS THIS GOING TO BE SO COOL?

Face it. Another talking head luncheon speaker is not going to get it done with a group that’s all about creative engagement and story-telling. Our sponsor VISIT FRISCO is all about engaging storytelling, and decided to make this lunch all about you…and your stories.

We’re going to give ten attendees a chance to pitch stories about their content, their brand or their destination in two minutes. All pitchmasters will walk away with something cool, but the real prize is the spotlight you’ll have on your content and your story.

HOW IS IT GOING TO WORK?

This is your chance to show YOUR content…and what makes your brand (personal or corporate) remarkable. Complete and submit the simple form below to apply for one of the 10 pitchmaster slots available. From applicants, VisitDFW and Visit Frisco will select 5 Content Creators and 5 Destination/Brand representatives to step on stage and do their thing. All pitchmasters and a brief summary of what they’re going to talk about will be featured in the participating pitchmasters section below. Selected pitchmasters will have two minutes to take the stage and deliver an inspiring, educational and most definitely entertaining “pitch” to the audience.

Here’s some further content guidance:

  • Content creators: Tell us how your creative magic or unique voice brought a story to life.
  • Tourism marketers/brands: Tell us something unique and remarkable that your destination/brand does better than anyone else OR that is a jaw-dropping “hidden gem”.

TEXAS LAKES TRAIL REGION

The Texas Lakes Trail Region is one of the ten heritage trail regions that cover the state. This program is part of the texas historical commission's heritage tourism division. Don't let our name fool you, we aren't about lakes, there are just a lot of them in our region! Our focus is North Central Texas' cultural and historic sites and themes that run through it. We weave stories together that connect communites both urban and rural. This provides a more complete understanding of what makes this area unique. A few of the themes include: Quanah Parker, Texas Crochet, the Vaquero, the Chisholm Trail, the Shawnee Trail, the Tom Lea Trail, and the Bankhead Highway. We promote exceptional sites that are often missed by to the casual traveler. The Texas Lakes Trail region is a great source of information for those looking for an undertold story. The heritage of Texas is anything but boring, and it can be found if you know where to look. The Texas Lakes Trail is designed to bring the real stories of Texas to life, and I'm here as a resource to bring these stories to you!
