February 13/13 17:07 pm - BC Mountain Bike Tourism Symposium


Posted by Editoress on 02/13/13
 

The Western Canada Mountain Bike Tourism Association (MBTA), in partnership with Recreation Sites and Trails BC, Tourism British Columbia, International Mountain Bicycling Association Canada, Royal Roads University, and District of Sooke, is proud to present the BC Mountain Bike Tourism Symposium at the Best Western Premier - Prestige Oceanfront Resort in Sooke, BC, on May 26-28.

British Columbia has gained much attention worldwide for its significant role in mountain biking.  The program of the Symposium is entitled “Progression”. It speaks to the opportunity for stakeholders and experts to gather and share insights and knowledge about how to progress toward a more sustainable and viable mountain bike tourism sector.

The Symposium is geared towards community leaders, land managers, trail advocates, adventure tourism operators, and government and industry representatives, and will present lessons learned from BC and other parts of the world. Key initiatives will be highlighted that represent new opportunities for communities throughout the province.

Topics will cover marketing mountain biking experiences, land use and product development considerations, environmental and risk management issues, partnerships and funding, as well as developing bike friendly communities and services.  Our goal is to unify the voice of the BC mountain bike tourism industry, and discuss the opportunities we have to drive more tourism to the province.

The symposium offers:

• Knowledgeable speakers and interactive panels of experts discussing key issues.
• Networking opportunities with stakeholders from around the province, plus a variety of social events.
• Announcements and updates on new initiatives.
• Pre-symposium Trail Development Workshop, May 25-26, featuring expertise from International Mountain Bicycling Association Canada.
