Spring 2016 Road Trip Opportunities

Roadway for Blog

MN, WI, KS, CO, CT, MA, RI, VT, NY, NE, MT


We have assembled several training and consulting road trips this spring, and we have openings for more participants. See our calendar at https://patternresearch.com/calendar/ for details.

Road trips allow us to group client visits geographically, so our customers (many of whom know each other) can share travel expenses and collaborate on publicity for public events. In many cases, we can discount our fees. Usually, I can agree to venues that are within a two-hour drive (100 miles) from a scheduled location.

Most of our customers work for libraries, higher ed, nonprofits, and local government. We also present for Chambers of Commerce and trade and professional associations and on weekends for board meetings and conferences.

Here are the dates and locations that are available as of February 10, 2016. The deadline to reserve a spot is usually 30 days before a trip starts (when I need to book my airplane and hotels for best rates).

If you draw a rectangle starting at Minneapolis, then up to Duluth, east to Ashland, WI, and finally down to Eau Claire, this gives you a rough idea of the region that is available. I will be flying into Minneapolis, visiting Duluth and Ashland, and then to Bloomer, WI and on to Viroqua, WI.
