Tourism Industry Business Retention and Expansion Project

Wednesday, November 6, 2019 - 11:00am to Saturday, December 21, 2019 - 11:00pm

A community-focused economic development project to enhance tourism offerings and grow tourism businesses is beginning in Hinton. Local tourism related businesses are encouraged to participate in this important project.

The Tourism Industry Business Retention and Expansion Project (TIBRE) is designed to identify business retention issues and expansion opportunities for existing tourism businesses in targeted municipalities. The project involves the identification of existing and eligible tourism businesses and visiting them to assess their health and intentions. The project helps existing tourism businesses optimize their operations by identifying challenges and implementing solutions to help them grow.

Tourism is a driver of the economy in the community and provides an important source of employment for locals.  Said Brian LaBerge, Hinton and Region Economic Development Coalition (HREDC) “We are pleased to support this important initiative in Hinton that will help grow our tourism industry.”

Business participation in this community economic development project is essential to its success. It will also strengthen collaboration between tourism-focused organizations and the local business community to further develop tourism in the community.

The first stage of the project is to visit with Hinton tourism related business owners, which will be starting shortly and will be completed by December 21st. In the next few days, tourism businesses will receive a letter detailing how they can participate. Individual information and comments will be confidential, but aggregated information will be shared in a report to the community. Combined with other tourism research, the report will be a valuable resource to help solve local problems, plan for future tourism businesses, and promote the community.
