Coming Soon to a City Near You: The Tourism Town Hall Series

posted on January 24, 2013

TIAC is pleased to announce details of the inaugural Tourism Town Hall series, a collection of open meetings between TIAC, the Canadian Tourism Commission and grassroots tourism stakeholders.

These FREE interactive sessions are intended to provide you with unparalleled insight on how TIAC and the CTC are working to grow the visitor economy.  The open forum also provides a unique opportunity for you to share your ideas on how we can make Canada’s tourism industry more competitive.

Two successful Tourism Town Hall meetings have already been held, last November in the Okanagan and this past January 16 in Niagara Falls.  The recent Niagara Falls session drew more than 70 participants, including tourism and hospitality business operators, tourism marketers, travel industry employees, government stakeholders, and local media.

TIAC would like to thank Niagara Falls M.P.P. Kim Craitor, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport as well as the Hon. Jim Bradley, M.P.P. for St. Catharines, Ontario Deputy Government House Leader & Minister of the Environment for their participation.

The tentative schedule has been set for the remainder of the series:

The sessions are jointly hosted by TIAC and the CTC and presented by InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) and WestJet.  All are welcome and invited to attend.
