People are our superpower! Hamilton Halton Brant is fortunate to have a highly skilled network of tourism professionals who are committed to providing visitors to our region with world-class service and experiences. HHBRTA facilitates several initiatives to encourage skills development, networking and the sharing of best practices within our industry, including:
HHBRTA offers annual workforce development and training workshops and webinars to help build tourism business opportunities and encourage progress toward business development priorities in our region.
Twice each year, HHBRTA facilitates a pan-regional industry exchange to encourage networking and information sharing between tourism industry colleagues from across the region.
Each spring, HHBRTA (RTO3) and Southwest Ontario (RTO1) work together to produce the Southern Ontario Tourism Conference (SOTC). The SOTC aims to increase operator networking beyond borders and inspire innovation within the tourism sector.
HHBRTA’s Regional Tourism Award Recognition Program recognizes and celebrates regional tourism industry partners and operators excelling in product development, business innovation, partnerships/ collaborations, sustainability, and job creation/workforce development.
