Destination Canada to host trade networking event

Destination Canada is inviting agents to attend a virtual networking event next month.

Agents can drop into sessions of their choice during the five-hour Canada Specialist Virtual Xpo event on November 23 to speak with the tourism board’s airlines and territory partners.

The “on-demand” event is to run from 2pm to 7pm and is designed to fit around agents’ work schedule.

The site is to stay live for 30 days if agents want to go back and learn more, the tourism board said.

Adam Hanmer, travel trade manager for Destination Canada UK, said: “We hope that travel agents will take this opportunity to refresh or update their knowledge if they know Canada well, or feel inspired to sign up and learn more if they don’t.

“We’ve worked hard to bring the industry to the event to showcase the best of Canada and hope that travel agents will enjoy the event.”

Agents can sign up via from October 22.
