The Canadian Tourism Commission is delighted to be attending and supporting the inaugural Travel Bloggers Unite Conference in Manchester in 2011.
We’re the land of friendly folks, exotic landscapes, vibrant cities, multi-cultural people and extraordinary experiences—from ice bergs, polar bears, the Northern Lights and the Arctic to French-Canadian Cirque du Soleil, hockey, pristine rainforest and surfing west-coast style and a thousand other stories inbetween that we simply don’t have space to illustrate on this web page. Whether it’s the Calgary Stampede, the ‘Just for Laughs Festival’ or the Red Bull Crashed Ice event , skiing down a Rocky Mountain or snowboarding on pristine snow, spending time with story telling lobster fisherman or tasting oysters in a local café on the east coast or checking out bears and whales on the west , jumping on board luxury train or just a regular one that’s taking freight and passengers far up north Canada is a country of unique experiences that never fails to deliver on memories and always exceeds expectations.
As the media landscape changes and evolves we want to be sure to be providing bloggers with the information and tools you need and want, to create your blogs where appropriate. We can only do that by getting to know you face to face and finding out how best we can work together. We hope that at the TravelBloggers Unite Camp you will come and locate us at our stand, or in the networking areas and find out more about Canada and give us the chance to find out more about you and your blog.
Our website www.canada.travel/media is regularly updated with media stories, news and ideas. It also houses video footage and images.
You can always follow me at @canadanim between now and March. I tweet almost daily – a lot about food which is a bit of a passion, but also a fair bit about Canada (surprise). You can follow my CTC colleagues from around the world who also tweet via @ctccct.
Twitter and a website can only provide so much - nothing beats meeting over a drink and putting a name to a face which is what I hope we’ll get to do at TBU11!
We hope you’ll come and explore a bit of Canada with us at TBU11.
