Cornwall Tourism attending Travel & Vacation Show

March 24, 2019

Cornwall Tourism will be promoting fun events and experiences in the area at the Travel and Vacation Show in the nation’s capital this coming weekend.

Now in its 24th year, the Ottawa Travel and Vacation Show features more than 200 exhibitors focused exclusively on destinations and travel. The show is attended by thousands of people in search of travel and vacation ideas – be it an international trip or a weekend getaway.

“We’ve attended the Travel and Vacation Show for a number of years and it’s always a positive experience,” said Kevin Lajoie, Tourism Coordinator. “It’s a great opportunity for us to speak to Ottawa-area residents about the many fun things to experience in our area. Our proximity to the nation’s capital makes it an ideal spot for those seeking a fun day trip or weekend getaway.”

Cornwall Tourism will be handing out copies of the recently-released 2019 Visitor Guide as well as the popular regional cycling maps and other useful information.

Cornwall Tourism will be located at Booth 125 at the show.
