We are pleased to let you know that the 6th biennial North American Garden Tourism Conference will take place November 3 to 5, 2019 in Victoria, BC.

This is where the North American and global gardens, garden experiences and tourism leaders meet to showcase best practices and present new and emerging strategies geared to growing the garden tourism sector.

The 2019 Conference theme is: Taking Garden Tourism to the Next Level

Taking: Looking at what others are doing, what’s happening elsewhere and seeing how you could adapt to enhance your garden tourism offering.

Garden Tourism: Working with the Tourism Industry, Destination Marketing Organizations and private sector tourism ‘worlds’ to integrate garden experiences.

Next level: Enhancing the competitiveness of a destination’s garden tourism assets and offerings resulting in increased tourism visits and spending for the destination and the garden.

We’re putting together an inspirational program with over 20 presentations – but aren’t quite ready to give you the details. Check our website regularly for updates and watch for updates on our Twitter feed and LinkedIn page.

The Canadian Garden Tourism Awards and Top 10 North American Gardens Worth Travelling For will be announced at the Awards Luncheon on Monday, November 4, 2019. Tuesday, November 5, 2019 will be a day filled with terrific optional workshops and tours to The Butchart Gardens, Victoria’s flagship garden.

All will be revealed soon . . . But for now . . . SAVE THE DATES!
