Very few brands are lucky enough to experience 12 months of steady business. In the tourism industry, we often refer to these slower periods as “Shoulder Season.”

Surviving Shoulder Season

When is Your Shoulder Season?

Not all destinations are created equal, and each destination is unique as to when it experiences its shoulder season. 

Tools to Master Shoulder Season

Have you tried these tools in getting ahead during shoulder season?



Strategically position events during a low season to increase heads in beds initiatives while positioning the event as an exclusive, must-attend for the time period.

Hotel and dining discounts encourage tourists to visit while appeasing the locals, and all benefit from smaller crowds, shorter waits and quality service.

Encourage locals to be a tourist at home or plan a staycation to garner local participation for dining, lodging and attractions. This builds a customer base that will last all year.

Don't let the season's name get you down; rename the season according to your business goals. Find a novelty that matches, and deem the season your own.
