ACTA forms new tourist board & destination representative committee

TORONTO — ACTA is launching a new committee that will allow tourist boards and destination representatives in Canada to connect with their global counterparts.

Designed to fill the gap left behind by the Association of National Tourist Offices and Representatives (ANTOR), the ACTA Committee of Tourist Offices and Destination Representatives will allow members to meet and exchange ideas, connect with like-minded professionals, and develop relationships with all sectors of the travel industry. Members are expected to collaborate on a wide range of issues affecting travel and tourism.

The committee’s first meeting is scheduled for March 31, 2:30-4:00 p.m., with subsequent meetings taking place at the end of each quarter throughout 2021.

In addition to quarterly meetings, the committee will work closely with the Canadian travel industry and forge meaningful partnerships with travel agencies, trade associations and suppliers, as well as share the latest advocacy research and insights of Canadian travel trends and forecasts. Members will also receive additional opportunities to participate in ACTA events.

 

 

Currently 18 destinations have contributed to ACTA membership and are part of the committee, including: Cayman Islands; Consulate General of Cuba; Czech Tourism; Flanders, Belgium; Greater Palm Springs; Israel Ministry of Tourism; Inside Asia; Italian National Tourist Board; Jamaica Tourism Board; Maritnique; Myrtle Beach; Nicaraguan Tourism Board; Portugal Tourist Board; Tourist Office of Spain; Visit Alentejo; VisitBritain; Visit Orlando; Visit Jordan; and VisitScotland.

Tourist boards and destination representatives must be a member of ACTA to participate in the committee. The annual fee for this category of membership is Cdn$1,000, with all proceeds being invested back into the membership to foster the success and prosperity of ACTA members through advocacy and professional development.
