Sydney, NS – Destination Cape Breton Association (DCBA) is delighted to announce the Travel Media Association of Canada (TMAC) has selected Cape Breton Island to host its 2016 Conference. The announcement was made at the 2015 TMAC Conference in Peterborough, ON during the DCBA luncheon featuring entertainment by Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy. This three day conference will host approximately 80 of the country’s top media travel writers and more than 150 industry delegates June 22 – 25, 2016.


Every year, members of the TMAC gather for a conference and annual general meeting. The writers and photographers who comprise the Media membership are the country’s leading movers and shak

ers in print, radio, television and the web (from blogging to social media). They come together with Industry members over the course of four days to make new contacts and gather story ideas for upcoming features. It’s a powerful group of A-list talent, anxious to keep up to date on all the current trends in the travel industry.

“It’s a great privilege and opportunity to welcome over 80 influential national travel writers to Cape Breton Island,” says Mary Tulle. “Our tourism industry will showcase their products and services, the economic impact of the conference will be significant and best of all, the profile for Cape Breton Island as a travel destination will be unprecedented.”

In addition to the three day media conference, DCBA is planning a number of mind-blowing experiences through pre and post familiarization tours.   Tulle adds that, “We are pulling out all the stops on this one.  We want TMAC 2016 to be unforgettable.”

Destination Cape Breton (DCBA) is the official Tourism Industry Association for Cape Breton Island. Working through industry partners, DCBA is dedicated to enhancing and growing Cape Breton’s tourism industry through marketing, tourism product development and visitor servicing island-wide.
