I recently spoke at Tourism Saskatchewan’s “Host” conference in Saskatoon and while I always learn something at the conferences I speak at (a big reason I actually speak at events) the topic of tourism has stuck in my mind. Tourism is content and experience! you have content and you want to sell the experience. So when I was making my slides before the day, I decided to talk about content marketing and social media, its almost like I know what I know what I am talking about. If you are in tourism and you are not very active on social you are missing out and frankly not doing your job.
