Registration open for TIAC Capacity Building Workshops

Monday, July 20 2020 03:30 PM

The Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) is launching a pan-Canadian, capacity-building Elevating Canadian Experiences workshop series that will support small and medium-sized businesses in rural and secondary markets.

Tourism Saskatchewan, in partnership with TIAC and Tourism Saskatoon, will co-host two province-wide online workshops on August 11-12. Additional partners include the Culinary Tourism Alliance and Twenty31 Consulting.

Designed for industry partners, small and medium-sized tourism operators and other tourism organizations, these workshops will address capacity building and strategy development, with a focus on the following:

  • Support for winter and shoulder season development – Canada is renowned for its winters; however, only one per cent of activities are winter-based, which creates challenges for tourism operators trying to optimize the use of talent and capital investments.
  • Support for culinary tourism development – Approximately one-fifth of spending by international travellers in Canada is on food and beverage. By increasing visitor demand for local food and drink, food tourism contributes to the long-term sustainability of local agriculture, food systems, communities and culture.

Register for one or both workshops. Space is limited; early registration is encouraged.
