About Eastman Tourism Development Conference
Eastern Manitoba is a sought-after tourism destination for the many attractions, events, and experiences available, yet tourism potential in the Eastman Region is far from being reached. Eastman Tourism and Community Futures Winnipeg River (CFWR), in partnership with our neighboring CF offices and key tourism sector agencies, aims to strengthen the Tourism Sector in Eastern Manitoba.
The main purpose of the conference is to better equip and position the local communities and tourism businesses to increase visitor attraction to the Eastman Region. By enhancing knowledge, enabling access to available resources, and motivating communities and businesses to work together, we will increase the ability to respond to tourism opportunities. After the conference, the partner agencies will continue to assist tourism agencies/businesses in meeting their own goals for development, expansion, or succession.
Tourism was growing before the pandemic, and it will thrive again after. We need to be responsive to current conditions and prepare for future growth in the Eastman region and beyond.
