2015 Tourism Summit – We Are Tourism – Photo Blog 5

The 2015 Tourism Summit concluded with a grand finale celebration; the Crystal Tourism Awards of Excellence Gala Dinner.  We gathered at the Grand Ballroom at the World Trade and Convention Centre in Halifax to showcase those individuals and businesses who are true leaders in tourism. Eight Crystal Tourism Awards of Excellence were presented.

Also presented were the 2015 Pineapple Awards – a celebration of our Pride in Service and of the individuals who go above and beyond to enrich visitor experiences. Throughout the year, visitors to Nova Scotia complete Pineapple Awards ballots located online and in hundreds of establishments throughout the province.

We invite you to continue to share your photos and videos of the 2015 TIANS Tourism Summit on our facebook page, through our twitter handle, or #wearetourism. On behalf of the board and staff at TIANS and NSTHRC, we would like again to thank all of the attendees, speakers, and sponsors for making the 2015 TIANS Tourism Summit a success!TIANS201500236
