What’s an RTO?
An RTO is a Regional Tourism Organization that is funded by the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries. We are #9 out of 13 other RTO’s in the province. We actively promote tourism in the South Eastern Ontario region and work with tourism operators on experiential product development and marketing initiatives designed to bring tourists to the region.
What’s a Tourism Summit?
As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, the entire tourism industry is figuring out how to manage the current state and plan for ongoing recovery. At our summit, you’ll hear from thought leaders from organizations such as Destination Ontario, Destination Canada, and more. We will be providing an overview of the travel landscape, how COVID-19 has affected our industry, and how we can manage these shifts moving forward. This is your chance to ask questions and learn from those in the tourism industry at all levels. We will be announcing our agenda for the day shortly.
Is the summit actually free?
Yes, getting your ticket only requires you to provide your name and email address.
