News – Learn from best in class leading travel destinations

January 25, 2018 News

Tourism Excellence North announces two new Best Practices Missions for the Northern Ontario tourism industry.

What is a Best Practices Mission (BPM)? A BPM is a 3-5 day working trip that showcases success stories from other leading travel destinations. With themes relevant to communities, destinations, and tourism operators, these group trips provide a chance to experience and learn from ‘best in class’. BPMs are just one of the the tools presented by Tourism Excellence North to strengthen and improve tourism across Northern Ontario.
