We’re reaching travellers in New England with our Summer/Fall Guide to the Annapolis Valley
The Valley REN has partnered with the Annapolis Valley Chamber of Commerce (AVCC) to publish a Summer/Fall Guide to the Annapolis Valley. It is designed for people who attended the Boston Globe Travel Show and expressed interest in travelling to Nova Scotia.
With Canada celebrating its 150th year of Confederation, and Parks Canada offering free admission to all national parks and historic sites, and with the CAT ferry linking the province to Maine, this is a perfect season for travellers from New England to visit Nova Scotia and the Annapolis Valley.
Emily Konrath, an economic development officer with the Valley REN, attended the Boston Globe Travel Show in February, along with Heather Leeman, former chair of the AVCC Tourism Marketing Committee. They were part of a Nova Scotia delegation led by Bay Ferries.
“The New England market is important for Annapolis Valley tourism and there are strong ties between the two regions,” said Konrath. “Many tradeshow guests told us they had family or friends from Nova Scotia and that a trip to the province was on their bucket list.”
The guide promotes events and attractions to help plan a visit to the Annapolis Valley. It includes links to wineries, musical events, town celebrations and resources and services for tourists.
Jenna Jackson, a Co-op student with the Valley REN for the summer of 2017, is entering her third year at Acadia University in the Bachelor of Business Administration program.
