RTO9 Regional Tourism Summit 2023

Posted on : 2023-09-13

On Friday, September 8th, we were at the RTO9 Regional Tourism summit at the Kingston Holiday Inn. We had a great day filled with valuable information and conversation. We were not only able to talk about our branding and what we do at our booth but also, Louis Béland, our Executive Director, spoke to all the attendees about what we have going on and what is to come. 

We also met some new businesses and shared some thoughts with one of our existing members, Fauxmagerie Zengarry. All in all, neither Louis nor I went home empty-handed after seeing so many great products at the vendor’s booths. 

We are grateful for the opportunity to speak at the event and look forward to future partnerships and growth.
