ATIS Content

There are four main types of content for ATIS:

  • Listings provide information about your tourism business or experience.
  • Events may be single organized events, or a series of events in a short timeframe (less than four months).
  • Offers provide travellers with pricing information for your tourism experience.
  • Articles tell stories and highlight interesting aspects of your tourism experience.

Each of the content types supports travellers at different stages of their purchasing decision and represents a unique opportunity to support them in their vacation planning process – whether it’s helping to develop excitement and discovery through Listings and Articles, providing time urgency and date-driven opportunities with Events, or supporting purchasing decisions through Offers.

Learn more about different ATIS category definitions and how to categorize your business using listings, events and offers.

The more relevant content that you produce, the greater the potential for increasing the exposure of your business through Travel Alberta’s channels and distribution partners.
