Inside Scoop Tourism Trade Show

The Parksville Qualicum Beach Tourism Association and the Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to host the second annual Inside Scoop Tourism Trade Show on Friday June 9 from 1-6 pm at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre. The trade show is designed to highlight tourism-related activities and services in the area to front-line business owners and staff. In a fun interactive atmosphere tourist operators and staff as well as community members can learn about the incredible tourist-related businesses in the Parksville Qualicum Beach area.

Qualicum Beach Chamber CEO, Evelyn Clark stated, "We plan to enhance and build upon the success of our initial trade show launched the summer of 2016. As well this year, we are looking to add short engaging and free workshops to make help workers do a stellar job."

This event is a fun, interactive training opportunity to better help front-line staff understand what the Parksville Qualicum Beach region has to offer in the way of tourist activities and destinations. There is great value in having informed staff who act as regional ambassadors and assist the tourists who ask the age-old question, "What is there to do around here?"

The trade show encourages attendees to visit all exhibitor booths and receive a "stamp" on a trade show passport. Once the attendees filled their passports, they turned them into the administration booth and become eligible to be entered in the draw for prizes supplied by trade show exhibitors. This ensures that participants stop by each exhibit and (ideally) learn new things about regional tourism activities in the process.

Tourism is a driving force in the Parksville Qualicum Beach region. Informed staff assists in making visitor experiences exceptional, encouraging people to stay, spend money, say great things about the region and perhaps return. An informed front-line staff is a "win-win" for everyone.

This enjoyable afternoon has the potential to be a great learning environment for community and tourism workers alike. Local businesses are encouraged to use the Inside Scoop Trade Show as their seasonal familiarization tour. Spots are starting to fill up! To register please call Anne at 250-752-0960 or e-mail members@qualicum.bc.ca. We will see you there!
