DID YOU MISS THE LIVE INSIDE TRACK?
Not to worry! The recording will be available to view in the Explore Canada Showcase.
The first-ever virtual RVC+ kicked off yesterday with an unforgettable Indigenous welcome hosted by members of the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC).
National tourism leaders provided updates on how their organizations are working to support the recovery of the tourism sector and visitor economy. Delegates heard from:
- The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Economic Development and Official Languages
- Monique Gomel, Destination Canada’s Interim Chair, Board of Directors
- Marsha Walden, President and CEO, Destination Canada
- Beth Potter, President and CEO, Tourism Industry Association of Canada
- Keith Henry, President and CEO, Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada
After over a year of restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re all ready to take our dream vacation. Destination Canada (DC) encouraged delegates to ask themselves where they want to visit first once we can travel again. And the DC team shared their marketing plans for domestic and international markets, as well as innovative efforts to support Business Events and a sneak peek at upcoming campaigns designed to inspire travel in Canada—where and when restrictions allow.
INSIDE TRACK MARKET UPDATE VIDEOS
The RVC+ team has added market update videos for eight key consumer markets including the United States, China, and Australia. The videos range from 10-30 minutes and share insider knowledge on what travellers will be looking for when Canada can safely welcome visitors again.
