North Bay chosen as host for 2024 tourism event

City will welcome delegates for Northern Ontario Tourism Summit

North Bay will play host to the Northern Ontario Tourism Summit in 2024.

Scheduled for next fall, the event will be a joint initiative along with Nature and Outdoor Tourism Ontario and Destination Northern Ontario.

Launched in 2014, the annual summit brings together tourism businesses, organizations, suppliers, and government representatives to collaborate on the promotion of tourism in Northern Ontario.

“We are thrilled to have been selected as the next destination to host the Northern Ontario Tourism Summit as this event has never previously been held in the city,” Tanya Bédard, Tourism North Bay’s executive director, said in a Nov. 15 news release.

“This is a tremendous opportunity to highlight the many attractions, activities and accommodations available throughout the city and to also welcome our colleagues and peers coming in from across the North.”

The event will feature training opportunities, information sessions, innovative and best practice workshops, a range of speakers, a tradeshow component, as well as numerous opportunities for networking and spending time discovering the local host community, according to the city.

The 2023 Northern Ontario Tourism Summit is on now, taking place Nov. 14-16 in Sault Ste. Marie.
