Lethbridge - March 25 - 27: 'Every Encounter Counts'.

Conference keynotes include entrepreneur W. Brett Wilson of Dragons’ Den fame, Anthony Cobb, of the Fogo Island Inn in Newfoundland and Mayor Dennis Travale who hosted the Norfolk County (Ontario) Music Festival the largest single event in rural Canada last year.

Delegates will also learn about tourism product development, such as the new Calgary Stampede’s Agrium Western Event Centre, investment attraction and best-practice examples, and real-life success stories from across Canada. All professional development sessions will be led by tourism industry experts.

This conference is an excellent opportunity for both new and existing tourism operators and representatives of southeastern Alberta municipalities to forge new partnerships, and develop cross-promotion and tourism packaging opportunities.

“The 2014 conference will be an opportunity to learn, exchange ideas, strengthen your business and be inspired,” says Cindy Amos, executive leadership Canadian Badlands Tourism. “We’ll also celebrate our tourism success stories which happens as a result of our communities committed to working together and sharing that entrepreneurial spirit,” Amos added.

Our 2013 Conference was a sellout in 2013 and more than 125 delegates have already registered at the early bird rate. For conference program details and to register, visit

The Canadian Badlands Tourism region encompasses more than 90,000 square kilometres of southeastern Alberta, stretching east from Calgary to the Saskatchewan border and south to the U.S state of Montana.
