The Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) is announcing the launch of its 2023 series of Tourism Town Halls, which kicked off on 19JAN in Saskatoon. The industry-wide event is delivered by TIAC to reach all tourism industry stakeholders from coast to coast to coast. It provides an opportunity to meet with TIAC and its partners to better understand efforts on national and local tourism issues, and offers a forum for open dialogue, discussion, and debate.
“We are encouraging and welcoming businesses and organizations in all sectors of the tourism economy to participate in our Town Halls this year,” says Beth Potter, President & CEO of TIAC. “As we strive to rebuild the industry post-pandemic, the time to come together to discuss the challenges we continue to face and find solutions is now.”
Each Town Hall is a full-day event that includes a morning session focused on innovation and sustainability best-practices and the sharing of experiences, while also highlighting digitization, market-readiness, research and training. Following a complimentary lunch, the Town Hall session will give tourism stakeholders the chance to provide input on issues affecting their business.
Attendees will also get an overview of the plans to reposition and grow Canada's visitor economy, including all verticals from leisure/business travel, travel trade, meetings and conventions and sports tourism.
