Join us at OH!Tourism Summit 2019 as we
explore the power of partnerships and
how together, we are growing tourism and
becoming Ontario's most talked about region!

We’re excited to be heading to Germania Club Pembroke on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 to explore the theme of Stronger Together: Growing Tourism Through Collaboration. We’ll be taking a closer look at the power of partnerships, how we've been aligning our messaging, and the benefits we've seen by working together to offer unique quality experiences.

We're working closely with the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA) to bring you another high-calibre, unique conference program designed specifically for Ontario's Highlands' tourism landscape.

Stay tuned for more exciting details in the coming months, but in the meantime, mark your calendars for this year’s event and visit our dedicated OH!Tourism Summit website for highlights from previous years.

We look forward to welcoming
you to #OHSUM2019
