-Mobile visitation continues to grow at a dramatic rate, with mobile now accounting for almost 30% of total visitation, up from 17% in Q1 2012.

-The 2013 Visitor Guide, produced in partnership with Where Calgary, was printed and delivered to Tourism Calgary for distribution to visitors throughout 2013. A digital version is available online.
