After Wednesday night’s Tourism Excellence Awards were presented, it was time to get down to business Thursday with the Tourism Industry Association of PEI’s annual conference.
Alaina Lockhart, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Tourism, spoke at a Town Hall session in the morning. She told delegates that the goal of the Minister is to ensure the tourism sector gets the recognition it deserves as an economic driver. Tourism represents 6.2% of GDP in PEI.
The theme of this year’s conference is Sustainable Tourism.
