The tourism industry has the opportunity to impact global change and lead the world in a new age of environmental and social responsibility.IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism is presented by a partnership between Destination Greater Victoria, Synergy Enterprises, Tartan Bond and Starrboard Enterprises. The title “IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism” was chosen to convey the importance of tourism as an economic driver as well as the large footprint it has on the environment, social and cultural fabric of a destination.
To drive, inspire and demonstrate innovative and collaborative sustainable solutions for positive tourism development across Canada.
As we work through this pandemic in the tourism market in Canada, environmental and social issues continue to threaten the sustainability of our planet and communities. The IMPACT founding partners recognized the urgency and opportunity in convening leaders to have a holistic dialogue about how we can create new partnerships, leverage technology, and change the trajectory of tourism towards a restorative, sustainable industry that Canada will benefit from for decades to come. This future-oriented discussion is timely and, until now, has not been convened within the tourism industry on a national scale. As conference organizers, we believe through conversation, inspiration and collaboration we can position Canada as a global leader in sustainability and innovation in tourism and drive a competitive advantage for the future. This is the legacy we hope to create from the IMPACT Sustainability Travel & Tourism Conference.
