Ala Carte Component Bundles


Not a Full Partner in the Library yet?  Until then you can take advantage of more of our services to reach out to more educators, group leaders and tour planners in all 6 group markets. Our services are available both to Full Partners (at no extra charge in the Partner Program) and also on an ala carte basis for organizations not yet Full Partners.

If you want to take advantage of 2 or more of our 6 services (for example, the Guide and the EXPO),  you can get both at a special bundled rate. Even though your best deal is being a Full Partner, bundled rates are more cost-effective than purchasing one service at a time. See the following descriptions, one-at-a-time pricing, and bundled rates…

The annual MN Field Trip & Activity Guide is a preferred, unique planning resource for educators, group leaders (youth and adult) and tour planners. Each June 12,500 full color Guides are printed and distributed. Our unique distribution places each Guide directly into the hands of select educators, activity coordinators and tour planners in schools, youth groups, adult groups, tour operators and travel clubs. Also published online, with thousands of digital “reads”. The Guide is especially popular for grade level planning teams in elementary & middle schools, and scout leader planning round tables.

The MN Field Trip & Activity EXPO is a very popular, one-stop-shopping trade show attended by well-qualified decision-makers who are on the hunt for activities and ideas. Held every August, more than 600 educators, group leaders, tour planners and event planners come to talk in person with more than 175 exhibitors who provide professional programs, entertainment and services for all types of groups – education, group travel and even corporate event planning. Now in our 9th year and the only event of its kind. Includes the confidential attendee list.
