Tourism Victoria Events Strategy

Tourism Victoria

Dear Reader, Not today we heard about the benefits that a major event back to a city, region or country. Observe the dispute between powerful cities in the world to host the Olympic Games. Or relevance of the organization of the World Cup.

The events tourism is a segment of extreme importance for the socio-economic development of a city. His achievement, either dies cultural, sports or business, has, among other effects, the thrust of tourists to a particular region.

With this, Brazil has increasingly, chalking up its space among the best destinations for events in the world. In November 2008, the Congress International Congress & Convention Association (ICCA), held in Victoria, Canada, Brazil snatched the eighth place in number of international events held in the country. (And, unfortunately, we descend a position, since in 2007 we were in seventh place.) Importantly, the criteria for classifying an event as international are strict, for example, the event has already occurred in at least three countries, its frequency and its longevity.

To Embratur, exclusively responsible for promoting Brazil abroad, capturing events and business tourism became priority. One of the results achieved with this policy was the choice of Florianópolis as host city of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) at its next annual meeting, a kind of World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) the private sector.

It's easy to understand change strategy Embratur, since the WTO has been pointing out, by the numbers, trends for tourism. In 2004, 120 million people traveled on business and to participate in events around the world. In 2008, there were 140 million people.

The gurus of the Ministry and Embratur betting on World Cup 2014, which will be the host nation Brazil, as major international events propelling the country. Due to inspections FIFA President, what we have seen in recent weeks by the media are government appeals here, pull there saquismo and logical, could not miss the promises.

Hopefully yes, that Brazil was consolidated as a destination for international events and cheered yes to that it becomes an example of organization and planning not only for the sport, not only for events, not only for tourism.

Where's the job ad. for BC travel writers?

About a week ago, among the postings for writing jobs in Victoria, I came across a job advert that was seeking creative teams (pairs) who were enthusiastic about travel and who liked to write. The job would entail driving across BC, pretty much living out of your vehicle, and filling out surveys that would rate the quality of various tourism bureaus along the way. I thought I'd read that applica... end of the month, but the job posting no longer appears, so my boyfriend and I -- who love to write -- have no way of submitting the application we've prepared. Can anyone help me find the info as to how to apply? Does anyone happen to have the address copied down? Might the recruiters stumble upon this? For any suggestions, E-mail hoolie_girl@hotmail.com, or call Holly at 778-989-4147. Thanks.
