Presentations of Canada-e-Connect 2009
Held January 21-23, 2009 in Toronto
On behalf of the Tourism Industry Association of Canada, we would like to thank everyone that helped make Canada-e-Connect 2009 a resounding success. Billed as Canada's e-Tourism Strategy Conference, this premier tourism/technology event was held this past January 21-23, 2009 in Toronto, Ontario.
A spectacular lineup of speakers and panellists provided delegates with terrific insight into some of the latest marketing trends and business practices in the tourism industry in the digital age. Speakers discussed how to take advantage of the latest social media and mobile marketing tools, and discussed some of the challenges and opportunities facing tourism operators and marketers in an ever-changing online business environment.
The various elements of Canada-e-Connect were developed by the CEC Advisory Committee, whose guidance has shaped a conference that delivered valuable insight and some excellent networking opportunities.
We hope that this experience has left you better informed and able to address the continually evolving technologies that are impacting on the tourism sector, and we hope to see you once again next year. Thank you to all who participated, and best of luck as you contribute to the development of your organization’s e-marketing strategy
