What is the training workshop?
A one-and-a-half-day experiential training workshop designed to inspire Northeastern Ontario snowmobile tourism stakeholders to create and build upon existing partnerships and projects to develop new, or enhanced, visitor experiences to foster increased visitation and revenue to their respective communities.
Why should you attend?
• Do you want to take your community’s snowmobiling experience to the next level?
• Does your community or destination have a high-level plan in place but needs a detailed action plan?
If you said ‘yes’ then this is the workshop for you because WE WANT TO SEE YOUR COMMUNITY MOVE FORWARD!
