ACTA’s New Tourist Board Committee Aims to Fill Gap Left by ANTOR’s Departure

World flags.ACTA has launched a new committee that serves as a forum for tourist boards and destination representatives in Canada to connect with their counterparts. ACTA says it hopes the committee will “fill a gap in Canada” left by the Association of National Tourist Office Representatives (ANTOR).

“The ACTA Committee of Tourist Offices and Destination Representatives will offer a forum for tourist offices and destinations representatives to meet and exchange ideas, connect with like-minded professionals, and develop relationships with all sectors of the travel industry. Members of the committee are expected to collaborate on a wide range of issues affecting travel and tourism,” ACTA said in a statement.

Tourist Boards and Destination representatives must be a member of ACTA to participate in the committee. The annual fee for this category of membership is CA$1,000. ACTA says all proceeds will be invested back into the membership.

Currently 18 destinations are part of this committee including: Cayman Islands; Consulate General of Cuba; Czech Tourism; Flanders, Belgium; Greater Palm Springs; Israel Ministry of Tourism; Inside Asia; Italian National Tourist Board; Jamaica Tourism Board; Martinique; Myrtle Beach; Nicaraguan Tourism Board; Portugal Tourist Board; Tourist Office of Spain; Visit Alentejo; VisitBritain; Visit Orlando; Visit Jordan; and VisitScotland.

Meetings are scheduled at the end of each quarter throughout 2021. The inaugural meeting is scheduled on 31MAR, 2021 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
