World Tourism Day 2018


Update: World Tourism Day 2018 at Capilano University was a great success! Thank you to all of the guest speakers at the industry panel and to everybody who participated in the day’s events! We are looking forward to World Tourism Day 2019!

PATA Capilano University Student Chapter has partnered with Tourism and Outdoor Recreation Student Association (TRECSA) to bring a full day of events to campus for World Tourism Day!

The day begins with the first ever PATA Cap U Podcast episode launching at 9:30 AM PST (11:30 PM ICT), which features the Co-Founder and CTO of Travelkoin and Traveliko, Bjorn Harvold.

There will be a panel of industry guest speakers from Destination BC, Landsea Tours, Grouse Mountain, and InterVISTAS Consulting in CE148 from 1:00 – 2:30 PM. They will focus on this year’s UNWTO theme of Tourism and the Digital Transformation.

To celebrate the end of the day in style, a #WTD2018 Pub Night will take place at the Coach House at the Holiday Inn, which is just down the hill from campus. Come and raise a glass to tourism and the exciting year ahead!
