Thank you to all participants of our first Conference and AGM!

We were grateful to receive feedback like these notes:

Sessions like "Successfully Navigating..." were highlights. Allowing speakers and experts to dig into topics with each other was the most interesting part.

I liked the break-out session - Beyond words: Tourism is Reconciliation in Action. Indigenous Tourism Manitoba (ITM).

My favourite things at Conference: Bringing together industry, keynotes of Phil Mondor, Greg Klassen, the panel with Destination Canada and TIAC with John was good.

This conference was an outstanding start for TIAM and long overdue!

The conference program and times allotted were excellent.

Presenters could not have been better. The calibre of presentations and discussions gave everyone encouragement, a great sense of comfort, and reinforced why it was important to be there. Further, they left everyone wanting more.

Overall, a five-star event. Congratulations!

And thank you Lilian and your army!
