Destination Canada

The challenge

As part of their regeneration strategy, Destination Canada wanted to improve the competency of their DMOs in managing the impacts of tourism and events.

The solution

We delivered an online Masterclass program to build the capacity of destination professionals to develop a robust impact strategy and implement measurement processes to monitor performance.

 

The GDS/#Meet4IMPACT team will review resulting destination strategies and coach the teams to improve their work and implementation plans.

The program was rolled out to 23 DMOs in 5 cohorts across all regions of Canada in October to December 2021.

Visit Belfast

The challenge

As part of the development of a new 10 year regeneration tourism strategy, Visit Belfast and Belfast County Council wanted to improve the competency of their DMOs board members and team in developing the positive impacts of tourism and events.

The solution
