Central Counties Tourism is pleased to continue its industry partner program, designed to further our collective success in attracting tourists (visitors that are travelling more than 40 km) to the region and/or extending the length of time they spend with us.
The popularity of the program continues to grow as more tourism stakeholders are making investments to grow visitation and revenues. In past years, Central Counties has done continual intake for partnerships until all of our available funds had been committed. Foreseeing an issue with more projects being proposed than we have funds for, Central Counties is making some changes.
To ensure that CCT has partnership funds available for projects taking place during all four seasons, there will be two intakes – one for spring and summer projects and one for fall and winter projects. Proposals must be submitted no later than:
March 1, 2020 for projects beginning April 1 – September 30
September 1, 2020 for projects beginning October 1 – March 31
The opportunities are outlined in the document: 2020-2021 Central Counties Partnership Opportunities
