Why Attend Congress 2023?

The Canadian tourism industry began its economic recovery earlier this year with the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions. But the path forward has been anything but straightforward. The thousands working in the sector are getting used to a new normal. There is a serious labour shortage. Supply chains aren’t what they once were. And inflation is putting pressure on.

The tourism industry was the first hit, the hardest hit, and is the last to recover. Rebuilding is not easy, but it is essential. The world needs tourism.

Right now is the best opportunity to take stock of how far we’ve come, look at current challenges and develop solutions, together. Canada: Powered by Tourism, is a world full of adventure and opportunity. Tourism Congress brings together the greatest minds and decision makers to tackle challenges head on, inspire, innovate, and open Canada’s doors to visitors domestically, and abroad.

Join the Tourism Industry Association of Canada’s Tourism Congress 2023 to learn about the changing market dynamics that are affecting your business – and how to adapt.

Each year, the event hosts nearly 500 delegates from across the industry, including key players from both the private and public sectors. Together, let’s reimagine the future of tourism.

  • Networking opportunities with your peers at one of the Canadian tourism industry’s largest annual gatherings

  • Insights from prominent thought-leaders and industry luminaries.
