The Corporation of the City of Brantford invites you to participate in Tourism Awareness Week—a grassroots initiative that brings attention to the economic opportunity available to Canada through travel and tourism and recognizes tourism organizations, businesses and other partners across the country for their contribution to the Canadian economy.
Tourism Awareness Week runs nationally from Sunday, May 28 to Saturday, June 3, 2017. To celebrate, Tourism Brantford will feature a different municipal attraction each day on social media. Follow us @TourismBrantford on Facebook and watch out for our daily blogs on the Discover Brantford website. There will be a daily draw with a unique prize provided by each establishment. Participating locations include: Northridge Municipal Golf Course and Learning Centre, Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts, Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre, Bell Homestead National Historic Site, Arrowdale Municipal Golf Course, Earl Haig Family Fun Park, and Brantford Celebrates Canada 150.
There are seven fantastic prizes to be won. To enter the daily draw, social media users must Tweet or post on Facebook a photo or statement about their favourite attraction in Brantford tagging @TourismBrantford using the #BrantfordTourismWeek OR fill out a ballot at the Visitor and Tourism Centre. Ballots will be accepted in person at the Visitor and Tourism Centre Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Online submissions will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. every evening and draws will be held the next morning.
“Tourism Awareness Week is a great initiative to help showcase some of Brantford’s wonderful attractions and the ways that the tourism industry benefits our local economy,” said Nicole Drake, Manager of Tourism and Marketing for the City of Brantford.
Kara Davey, Tourism Information Coordinator, adds, “We want to see the community engaged for Tourism Awareness Week. Participating in this week-long event not only gives citizens of Brantford multiple chances to win great prizes, but also gives people the chance to learn something new about the attractions they pass each day.”
Supporting local tourism attractions leads to increased revenue, job creation and greater economic impact within the community. This benefits everyone in the community as stronger local economies provide greater access to opportunities and also more funding for local initiatives such as parks and recreation, services and infrastructure, health and education.
Tourism Brantford thanks all of the partners for their generous donations, and wishes contest participants the best of luck! We thank all participants for their submissions, but only the winners will be notified. Prizes will be available for pick-up at the Visitor and Tourism Centre at 399 Wayne Gretzky Parkway.
