New Podcast for Festival & Event Organizers

If you are a festival or event organizer, looking to learn more from the movers and shakers in the field, Festivals & Events Ontario (FEO)’s new podcast is a must-download for you.

Guests have included Beth Potter, President and CEO of the Tourism Industry Association of Ontario (TIAO); Michele Bosc, VP of Marketing and Administration at Chateau des Charmes Winery; and Brant Matthews, Guinness World Record holder for eating 101 flaming torches in 60 seconds!
