events fullA free workshop is being offered by RTO7, in cooperation with the Town of Saugeen Shores and Saugeen Shores Chamber of Commerce. This workshop will take place on Wednesday, November 25 from 12:30 to 4:30pm at the Southampton Town Hall, 26 Albert Street.

This workshop will include topics such as: AGCO permit options; How to work with your local AGCO inspector and your local police official; Insurance policy coverage options from industry professionals that have the answers to identify and address your risk; A “what I learned” discussion from other event planners that have been through the process of serving alcohol at their events.

“I feel this partnership between the Saugeen Shores Chamber of Commerce, Town of Saugeen Shores and Bruce Grey Simcoe is exciting,” said Heather Lorenz, Recreational Programs Supervisor with the Town of Saugeen Shores, “as now we can reach out to local event planners that may not have had access to this type of special event educational opportunity in the past.”

Cheryl Beamish, Tourism Coordinator with the Saugeen Shores Chamber of Commerce, hopes this free seminar will help all local groups, clubs and organizations to plan and implement successful events, of all sizes, in the near future; as special events are an important economic driver and contributor to our local tourism industry.”

To pre-register for this free workshop, RSVP to Kim Clarke at or call 519-379-2506.

RTO7, the Town of Saugeen Shores and the Saugeen Shores Chamber of Commerce hope that a wide variety of event planners will attend.
