As I wrap up another year of teaching the next generation of business and tourism leaders, it’s fitting that it’s Tourism Week across Canada.
Let’s face it: we’re so immersed in our industry that we don’t take the time to tell our stories. Tourism Week is a grassroots, Canada-wide, weeklong celebration that’s trying to change all that.
Here are some ways Destination BC suggests we can shout success from the rooftops, so to speak:
- Post photos (with permission) of people and places related to tourism in your community
- Use the hashtag #BCTourismMatters
- Follow Destination BC on Twitter and LinkedIn and share their #BCTourismMatters content on your channels
- Follow local attractions, communities, and other tourism champions and do the same
Destination BC also has some great infographics – good resources for sharing, and educating, our communities and their advocates about the power of tourism in our communities.

This is our time to shine, tourism nerds! Let’s share the news that #BCTourismMatters!
