2021 Regional Tourism Summit

Pre-registration for the Explorers’ Edge 2021 Regional Tourism Summit is now open!

This year’s virtual edition will be held on June 24 via Zoom from
9.30am – 1.00pm.

Join us as we launch the Board-sanctioned and ministry-approved 2021-2022 Business & Operational Plan, which is the foundation for our regional recovery and revival strategy, and which highlights RTO12’s shift to a destination development organization with regenerative tourism principles at its core.

The summit will feature information about ‘the business of tourism’ as a catalyst to resiliency and sustainability for tourism stakeholders and local communities. It will include guest speakers, break-out sessions and more intel that will reinforce our organizational commitment to a new ‘region-centric approach’ for the benefit of all, including the Board’s new Vision and Mission Statements.
