New Collaborative Tourism Alto Award

The Alberta Tourism (Alto) Awards recognize individuals and organizations committed to enriching Alberta’s tourism industry and who by their actions inspire others and demonstrate what can be achieved by working together.

New for 2014 – the Collaborative Tourism Alto Award has been designed to acknowledge a collective and successful effort on the part of a community, communities or groups to work together to promote or support tourism. 

The award is open to any group of stakeholders whose collective efforts have helped to advance the tourism industry. Applications will be accepted from any organization, business, community or stakeholder group who have displayed a commitment to tourism development, initiatives or services in Alberta. The collaborative activity must have taken place between January 1, 2013 to August 31, 2014. 

The Alto Awards will be presented in nine categories, and to the 2014 Alto Ambassador, at the Alto Awards gala, October 20, 2014, in conjunction with the 14th annual Travel Alberta Industry Conference in Banff, October 19-21, 2014.

Deadline for applications is September 5, 2014.
