About this Event

Cultural tourism is experiencing impressive growth and has evolved towards the intangible elements of culture as authentic experiences where interaction with the locals becomes the main reason to travel. Showcasing French heritage, history and culture is a productive way to create new experiences around these intangible elements in a dynamic way and allows the host communities to thrive.

This session will present how innovative and inspiring practices showcasing French culture and heritage can support value-added development and partnership strategies for both the industry and the local destinations.

Additionally, the Culinary Tourism Alliance will provide information on the Feast ON program. Feast On® is a certification program that recognizes businesses committed to sourcing Ontario grown and made food and drink. Supporting local economies and Ontario’s farmers is important; especially for the food service industry. It builds our local food identity, it puts dollars back into our communities and it limits our environmental impact. A Feast On® certification proves you’re fighting the good fight. It lets your customer know that by choosing your restaurant, they’re supporting our food system too.

RTO 9 is a regional tourism organization that is funded by the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries. RTO 9 actively promotes tourism for the South Eastern Ontario region and works to support and grow the tourism industry through product development initiatives.
