In October 2018, us and nine Industry Partners took on the challenge of participating in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism’s Experiential Tourism Development initiative. For the past seven months our group has been hard at work developing new immersive experiences, elevating existing experiences with the goal of creating new revenue streams, drive visitation during targeted seasons and to create a competitive advantage for our destinations in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores.
Industry Partners collaborated with Joe Veneto of Veneto Collaboratory to design, craft, script and stage our new visitor experiences. These experiences have been branded Signature Experiences on Alabama’s Beaches.
The new Signature Experiences include:
Orange Beach Concierge: Chef’s Table
Gulf State Park Nature Center: Guided Pier Walk and Angler Academy
Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo: Animal Enrichment Program and Animal Encounters
Wild Native Tours: Dolphins and Wildlife Kayak Tour
Gulf State Park Lodge: Ecotourism and Sustainability Tour
High Cotton Bath Company: Bath Boldly
Reel Surprise Charters: Elevated Experience
Young’s Suncoast: Elevated Experience
LuLu’s: Gumbo Love Cooking and Mixology Class (launching Fall 2019)
Fort Morgan: Espionage at Mobile Point (and escape room launching August 2019)
Our experience, Chef’s Table is launching on May 2nd (SOLD OUT) and seating will be available every Thursday night with more dates to come. Chef’s Table is RSVP ONLY and you can reserve your seat at the table on OpenTable, gulfshores.com and Orange Beach Concierge.
“Chef’s Table at Orange Beach Concierge is a place where we can come to together as diverse (different) people and backgrounds to eat, drink and connect as community while featuring the local farms, vineyards and purveyors we are fortunate to work with.” – Chef David Pan
It goes without saying that we are honored to participate in Signature Experience on Alabama’s Beaches and we are very excited to welcome you into our kitchen.
