Tourism Operator Support

Tourism Sector Symposium
March 24, 2021

Tourism and tourism-related businesses have been heavily impacted by the pandemic. With tight travel restrictions limiting a full recovery, many operators have been forced to pivot and adapt in these unprecedented times. 

Join us Wednesday, March 24, from 8:30AM – 11:45AM for a virtual Tourism Sector Symposium.  It is free and open to Cumberland and Colchester tourism and tourism-related businesses.

This symposium is an opportunity for businesses to share and discuss challenges faced in the current environment. The symposium will include:

  • A panel of businesses who will share their experiences and learnings from 2020. Panelists include:
    • Jill Linquist, President – Raging Crow Distillery
    • Tom Trueman, Owner – Trueman Farms
    • Brian Hebert, Owner – Fundy Treasures
  • A presentation from M5 Marketing Communications on Nova Scotia research, findings and marketing strategies.
  • A facilitated discussion where businesses can share information and explore opportunities to rebound from the pandemic.
