About the Conference  

The Ontario Cycle Tourism Forum was held on January 23, 2009 at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel in Toronto, and brought together cycle tourism stakeholders to discuss business development opportunities and challenges of this growing tourism market segment in Ontario.

The key objectives of the forum were to:

  • Provide innovative and engaging presentations by an international panel on best practices for cycle tourism development and promotion in Ontario;
  • Increase the awareness and importance of province-wide infrastructure and way-finding signage for cycle tourism development; and,
  • Establish Ontario as a leading cycle tourism destination in North America.

 

The forum featured presentations from world-leading cycle tourism organizations and provided market profiles of specific regions, successful tourist product and marketing examples, business development case studies, best practices in infrastructure and signage, and evaluation of regional growth opportunities. Over 160 delegates attended from across Ontario and beyond representing destination marketing organizations, municipal and provincial government, tour operators, non-profit organizations, and established cycling associations.
