Gold Rush Trail Project Regional Workshops

Apply now for this regional workshop focused on growing the tourism potential for businesses and communities along the Gold Rush Trail. The purpose of these hands-on workshops is to help tourism businesses, heritage tourism operators and communities identify visitor types and expectations, learn how to create memorable visitor experiences and work cooperatively to leverage opportunities. The facilitator, Dr. Nancy Arsenault of the Tourism Café Canada, has worked with communities and businesses all across the country, managed a federal heritage site, and will bring new insights about the traveller. She'll share examples of successful heritage tourism operations in other jurisdictions and challenge you to think about new ways to generate new revenue, attract your 'ideal guest' and discover the value of strategic partnerships within and between communities and businesses.
