ACTA Launches Destinations Committee

ACTA is launching a new committee that will serve as a forum for tourist boards and destination representatives in Canada to connect with their counterparts, filling a gap in Canada left by ANTOR.

The ACTA Committee of Tourist Offices and Destination Representatives will offer a forum for tourist offices and destinations representatives to meet and exchange ideas, connect with like-minded professionals, and develop relationships with all sectors of the travel industry.

Members of the committee are expected to collaborate on a wide range of issues affecting travel and tourism, with meetings are scheduled at the end of each quarter throughout 2021.

The first meeting of the committee is scheduled for Wed., March 31 from 2:30 – 4:00 PM.

The committee’s activities throughout 2021will include:

  • Quarterly meetings to discuss ideas and exchange views.
  • Work closely with the Canadian travel industry and forge meaningful partnerships with travel agencies, trade associations and suppliers.
  • Share the latest advocacy research and insights of the Canadian travel trends and forecasts.
  • Additional opportunities to participate in ACTA events

Currently 18 destinations have contributed to ACTA membership and are part of this committee including:
