Tourism industry support

Guelph Tourism Network

In 2016 Guelph Tourism Services invited Guelph and Wellington County-based businesses and organizations, whose primary mandate is tourism, to participate in a newly formed Guelph Tourism Network.

The Network brings together stakeholders who are:

  • Committed to working together to grow Guelph as a modern leader in destination development
  • Eager to tell the best stories and share them with the world
  • Interested in collaborations that set the highest standard for visitor services

We support the Network through:

  • Digital promotion and storytelling support
  • Regular updates and communication
  • Cooperative advertising opportunities in targeted travel platforms
  • Profiles on visitguelphwellington.ca
  • Affiliated memberships to organizations with a mandate to grow tourism
  • Modern visitor information delivery and distribution
  • Tourism business development support

Conference support and event services

We support conferences, events, and sport tournaments that bring visitors to Guelph to create a memorable experience.

We provide support from the planning stages through to implementation with:

  • Itinerary development
  • Tourism To Go kiosk at registration
  • Distribution of special offers/discounts for local attractions
  • Dining and accommodation resources
  • Delegate packages including visitor information
  • Web and social media promotion
