2017 Ottawa Valley Tourism Conference & AGM

Tuesday, April 25th., 2017
9 :00 am to 4:30 pm
Spectacle Lake Lodge in Barry's Bay, Ontario.

This year’s event will be focused around the launch of the regional Come Wander brand platform in partnership with our Regional Tourism Organization – Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization (OHTO). Over the past year, the team at OHTO has made great strides in the development of the Come Wander regional brand, including bringing to life and restructuring digital channels to engage the visitor and inspire them to take a trip to Ontario’s Highlands. This session will paint the complete picture of Come Wander, highlighting how the brand message will be communicated through a content marketing approach and how you, the industry, can feed into this platform now and for years to come.

This year also marks 60 years of tourism promotion in the Ottawa Valley!
