National #TourismWeek is here!
As one of Canada’s largest provinces, Ontario has faced the biggest waves of the pandemic in the country, but we’re about to win this battle. Exhibition Place is ready to host safe, in-person meetings that comply fully with local health regulations. That’s good news for the tourism sector, which is looking forward to a reduction in travel restrictions and the return of visitors.
Face-to-face events connect people and are a catalyst for collaboration and investment. These connections spur high-value jobs and inspire innovation among academic thought leaders for the advancement of all industries. Did you know that business travellers in Canada spend 4X more than leisure travellers and each business participant spends an average of $668 per event? Business visitors often extend their trips or return as leisure visitors, to explore Canada and enjoy the local culture, cuisine, activities and attractions.
During Tourism Week 2021, from May 23 to May 30, Exhibition Place will recognize the important contribution made by visitors to Canada’s overall tourism economy. Over 1.8 million Canadian jobs depend on the economic activity generated by travel and tourism. Canada is at a turning point in the COVID19 pandemic, and we look forward to seeing a vibrant and thriving sector once again.
