Join your conference delegates over lunch as the long-term legacy effects of hosting major events in Alberta are shared by representatives from the Red Deer 2019 Canada Winter Games and Edmonton International Triathlon Union
The morning starts bright and early as your conference hosts preview the day and we welcome a representative from the Enoch Cree Nation which is a proud First Nations situated on Treat No. 6 territory in central Alberta, bordering the city of Edmonton’s west side to bring greetings.
In this fast paced session attending delegates will have the opportunity to rotate through and participate in a series of round-table discussions on the impact of sport hosting at the regional and municipal level throughout Alberta.
Sport Tourism Leaders and Representatives from Grande Prairie, Fort McMurray / Wood Buffalo, Leduc, Medicine Hat and Lethbridge along with Hockey Alberta will lead the discussions. Topics will include Building a Sport Tourism Portfolio in your Community, Formalizing the Bidding Process, Working with the Sport Organization after you have won the Bid, Community Building and Engagement, Community Building from a Volunteering perspective and how Hockey Alberta has developed their Provincial Championships bid packages and assesses proposals from communities through their hosting allocation process.
