Destination Canada Receives 2016 Travel Leaders Award At WTM


Destination Canada, formerly the Canadian Tourism Commission, has won a prestigious World Travel Market London 2016 Travel Leaders Award in recognition of its success in raising the country’s international tourism profile, reports Press Today’s Michael Baginski from this year’s show.

Rupert Peters, regional managing director core markets for Destination Canada, received the award from Baxter Travel Media president David McClung.

Ten other regional winners, including Italy, India, Spain, Portugal and China, received awards at a special presentation on Monday at the opening of World Travel Market, the largest English-language travel trade show in the world.

With its name change, and the “Connecting America” marketing campaign, WTM judges said, “New leadership has taken the profile of international tourism in Canada to another level.”
