Tourism Road Show Set to Visit Five Locations Across the Island in March


Valerie E. Docherty, Minister of Tourism, is pleased to invite the tourism industry to a Tourism Road Show in their region. Tourism PEI staff will be visiting five different locations across Prince Edward Island to speak with industry about the upcoming season and what’s happening at the Department.

It’s an opportunity to hear information about the latest changes and newest additions within the Department, the newly implemented Integrated Tourism Solution and key objectives to drive future growth.

“This is the first time we’ve arranged to go out into the community in this type of format,” said Minister Docherty. “There was an interest on both sides to create a venue where industry and the Department could meet and discuss opportunities and share ideas. The Department has implemented some changes and we want to be able to discuss these latest changes and newest additions with industry face-to-face.”

Along with Tourism PEI and regional tourism associations, other partners such as the Tourism Advisory Council, The Tourism Industry Association of PEI and Dunne Consulting (co-op advertising program) will be on hand to answer questions.

The schedule for the five Tourism Road Shows is as follows:

1. Monday, March 23 at 6:30 p.m. – Stanley Bridge Women’s Institute Hall – Cavendish Beaches & the Dunes Shores Association/Kensington & Area Tourism Association
