Funding Futures: Canadian Edition
The webinar on September 17, 2020 summarized the findings and recommendations for Canadian DMOs from “Funding Futures,” a major study of the recovery and future of tourism and DMO funding coming out of the COVID-19 crisis. Tiffany Gallagher of Civitas, Chris Adams of Miles Partnership, Adam Sacks of Tourism Economics and Erin Francis-Cummings of Destination Analysts, along with Royce Chwin of Tourism Vancouver, Cathy Duke of Destination St. Johns and Kathleen Trainor of Tourism Barrie, presented this essential update for your DMO’s funding future. Check out the recording below or view the slide deck here.
The Funding Futures report was undertaken by Miles Partnership, Civitas and Tourism Economics with most of the time and effort contributed pro-bono to allow all DMOs to access the report free of charge. Some valuable funding was provided by the U.S. Travel Association Destination Council and the Destination Marketing Association of Canada. Important support was also provided by Destination Analysts with additional in-kind assistance from Destinations International.
