Cutting Edge Trends a Focus at NAFOA's 2017 Fall Finance & Tribal Economies Conference

August 23, 2017

The agenda for NAFOA's 2017 Fall Finance & Tribal Economies Conference features two full days of breakout sessions, and two general sessions focused solely on discussing important issues facing Indian Country.    
Cutting Edge Trends:
The Business of Hollywood 
Indian tribes have been approached in the past about investing in movie productions with little success. An Indian tribe and its partners set out to change that dynamic using an Interior Indian loan guarantee and focusing on the business end of the production instead of the content. A few years later and after a few notable successes, the efforts have paid off with a top-tier production that also features Native actors and  content in the production of Wind River. Join the investing partners of Acacia as they discuss the business and culture of Hollywood. 
Affinity Travel 
Tribal governments are looking for new and creative ways to develop unique experiences for visitors, including niche affinity travel programs like foodie and wine tours, along with marijuana-centered vacations. Insights into the travel industry show visitors are willing to spend more money for a more enduring connection between travelers and the communities they visit.  Our panel will discuss the benefits of providing a unique experience for affinity travel based on the niche travel culture.
