We are pleased to partner with Indigenous Tourism Ontario (ITO) and the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO) on this event. ITO is the province’s first and only dedicated Indigenous tourism organization that focuses on uniting communities, Indigenous organizations and industry leaders to support the growth of Indigenous tourism in Ontario. ITO is working in tandem with its provincial counterpart TIAO to advocate the importance of tourism as an economic driver and job creator in order to serve the interests of Ontario’s diverse tourism industry and business community.

As ABM is about supporting business with the ultimate aim of achieving regenerative economies that create equitable prosperity for all, we are always motivated and energized by organizations that collaborate effectively. We are therefore thrilled to do our part to support the organizations’ mandate to strengthen the tourism industry in Ontario.

For this event, we aim to connect business operators with innovative technology companies that can enhance existing tourism offerings or develop new products and services. As the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the digital shift, we have seen a rise in online management tools, online retailing, virtual events and workshops as well as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) products. We invite you to reimagine, create, and explore how tech and tourism can work together.

This is a provincial event. It is relevant to all tourism business and Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities in Ontario that want to stabilize and increase revenues, build, support and expand the industry through partnerships and new business relationships. Conversations will include anything from website design to technology-based product development to
customer relationship management.

This is one of many ways ITO is working to foster communication, collaboration and partnership in the industry. View ITO’s 5yr strategy to learn more: CONTINUING OUR JOURNEY – Strategic & COVID-19 Recovery Plan 2020 to 2025.
