Growing Rural Tourism Entrepreneurship Challenge 2016

After a very successful inaugural year in 2015, the Growing Rural Tourism Entrepreneurship Challenge will be hosted again in 2016 by Camrose Regional Exhibition as part of the Growing Rural Tourism Conference. The challenge helps tourism operators develop new products and experiences and grow their businesses.

Participants will receive valuable feedback from industry experts to kick-start their projects.

Prize money for the Entrepreneur Challenge winners can be used for product development services, marketing materials or expenses, market research, human resources directly related to the new product or experience, and relevant training. The prizes also include free conference registration and one year of mentoring from industry expert judges.

The 2015 winners were Aspen Crossing (Champion), Prairie Gardens & Adventure Farm (Reserve Champion) and Flying Cross Ranch (3rd place).
