Travel Alberta and the Tourism Industry Association of Alberta regretfully announce that we are postponing the 2022 Alberta Tourism Industry Congress planned for April 25. This year brought us unexpected logistical challenges, driven by significantly lower than expected registration numbers.

Postponing the event will allow us time to reassess our engagement and recognition processes and ensure that we are truly responding to the needs and desires of you, our partners—the people who make Alberta’s visitor economy thrive.

Your ticket purchase will be fully reimbursed in the form it was paid. Please allow 7-10 business days for this credit to show on your account.

If you booked accommodations at the Fairmont Banff Springs, you will receive an email advising that your reservation has been cancelled. Fairmont has graciously agreed to honour room rates at the time of booking for those who wish to keep their reservation. If you wish to reinstate your reservation, please call the hotel directly at 1-833-762-6866 or 1-403-762-6866 following receipt of your cancellation notice.

In the meantime, our Tourism Town Halls, which have been tremendously successful, will continue. We have already connected with more than 500 tourism industry professionals in communities across the province and have three more events planned for May. Thank you to all who have attended the sessions to date. If you are interested in participating in an upcoming town hall, you may register here.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your support with this difficult decision. Travel Alberta and the Tourism Industry Association of Alberta wish you all a healthy and prosperous tourism season.
