2020 Atlantic Indigenous Tourism Summit
Pjilasi - Welcome!
The 2020 Atlantic Indigenous Tourism Summit (AITS) will bring together individuals, business owners, artists and crafters, community leaders, industry and government departments that are all interested to supporting the growth of Indigenous tourism opportunities across the Atlantic Region. The Nova Scotia Indigenous Tourism Enterprise Network (NSITEN) are the host organization for the 2020 AITS, along with the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC) are very happy to welcome you the 2nd Annual Atlantic Indigenous Tourism Summit.
Taking place in Kjipuktuk (Halifax, NS), in the traditional and unceded territory of the Mi'kmaw Nation, this event will welcome you with open hearts and minds as we work towards increasing ways in which we can create more jobs, start new businesses and increase the overall revenue in the tourism sectors with Indigenous people getting more involved.
Key tourism information will be presented by industry organizations such as the Tourism Industry Associations across the Atlantic Region as well as ITAC and the work that they are doing regionally and nationally to increase capacity of Indigenous business owners through their new Indigenous tourism strategies.
We will also have our very first Atlantic Indigenous Tourism Awards which will celebrate both business achievements but also students & community enterprises involved and successful in the tourism industry! We are very excited about this event!
