Marketing Pioneers Named Co-Chairs of the 2013 Tourism Congress

posted on May 29, 2013

Two of Canada’s leading tourism marketers have been named as co-chairs of the 2013 edition of the Tourism Congress: Julie Canning, President and CEO of Banff Lake Louise Tourism and Emmanuelle Legault, Vice-President, Marketing at Tourisme Montréal.

In addition to co-hosting the travel industry's premier national conference, the co-chairs will help TIAC design a program for the Tourism Congress that is valuable, insightful and relevant for the sector.

This December 2-4, the Congress returns to the Chateau Laurier, mere steps from Parliament Hill and the heart of government activity in Canada.  Delegates from across the country will once again converge on Ottawa and interact with the elected officials and decision-makers whose departments and agencies impact upon the industry.
