SUDBURY –As a result of the COVID-19 virus, the TMAC 2020 Conference & AGM has been cancelled for June 9-13, 2020. The TMAC Board is working closely with our Conference Committee and the Greater City of Sudbury team to determine whether or not we can find an alternate date in September or October 2020.
TMAC is a not-for-profit agency serving industry and media travel professionals. Its annual conference attracts members from across Canada and features educational workshops, networking sessions and site tours in the host community.
"With such an amazing bid package and fun luncheon to announce Sudbury as next year’s host destination, all of TMAC looks forward to discovering and experiencing the great region of Sudbury. Anxiously waiting for your hospitality and games of Porketta, commented Guy Theriault, TMAC Conference Committee Chair.
“This conference hosting opportunity presents Greater Sudbury with the potential to generate considerable media attention from across the country, and TMAC members will be visiting several of the city’s marquee attractions, event venues, culinary feats, and Greater Sudbury’s hidden gems while they are here partaking in three-day pre-tours four-day conference,” said Dana Jennings, Manager of Tourism & Culture with the City of Greater Sudbury. “This is a chance for Sudbury to put our best foot forward to showcase our city to Canada’s best and most active professional travel writers, broadcasters, editors, bloggers, online influencers and photographers, and we are excited to introduce them to many of our wonderful local tourism partners as they experience our warm and authentic northern hospitality.”
The Travel Media Association of Canada chose Greater Sudbury for next year’s annual conference through a competitive bid process. Travel media attention forms an important component of the City’s annual tourism marketing and promotional efforts. Hosting this conference is a great opportunity for our community.
