About Techshare

Techshare 3.0 is the new online tool to create, edit and share Maine tourism-related stories, events, deals and business listings on the following Maine tourism websites:

VisitMaine.com

MOT is suspending the VisitMaine.com calendar of events. Many of those events were scheduled to take place during the next several months.

Techshare is built on the Elebase Content Management System (CMS) and provided free-of-charge to the Maine tourism industry by the Maine Office of Tourism. To list your event, business or organization on the site, sign up below.
