This international event has been successfully hosted by ITAC and delivered through the partnership of the various regional Indigenous tourism organizations for the past six years, having already been delivered in British Columbia, Quebec, Nova Scotia and Alberta.

Over 500 delegates participated in panel discussions, breakout sessions, keynote presentations and local cultural experiences.
