Forging Canada’s Tourism Future

TIAC’s Tourism Congress is happening November 30 to December 1
In-person registration is sold out!

This has been a year unlike any other.

As Canada’s visitor economy continued to struggle under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, tourism operators have been incredibly resilient.

From coast to coast to coast, you marched onward. You adapted to the ever-changing measures to contain the spread of the virus.

With courage and determination, you placed one foot in front of the other on an uncertain path forward.

And finally, there’s a glimmer of hope on the horizon. Vaccination numbers are going up and case numbers are going down. National, provincial, territorial and regional reopening plans are underway.

The pandemic has changed everything.

But it’s also given us the opportunity to work together, adopt new ways of doing business, and reimagine what tourism looks like post-COVID-19.

Come join us at the Tourism Industry Association of Canada’s 2021 Tourism Congress.

Together, we’ll blaze a new path forward.

The 2021 Tourism Congress is a great opportunity to showcase your brand and connect with in-person and virtual delegates from coast to coast to coast.

Last year, over 3,000 tourism stakeholders attended the Tourism Congress, including business owners, senior management, and key corporate decision-makers.

“It is simply the best event to meet and greet colleagues in the Canadian industry. I try to go every year.”
