Join representatives from the Bay of Quinte Regional Marketing Board, Ontario Tourism Innovation Lab and regional partners for the official launch of the tourism “Spark” Program.
The “Spark” Mentorships & Grants Program is being launched in the Bay of Quinte to encourage individuals, entrepreneurs, small businesses and non-profits to apply with their next great tourism ideas for the region.
The program is supported by local sponsors Trenval Business Development Corporation and Regional Tourism Organization 9 (RTO 9).
“Spark” seeks to find, foster and support new tourism ideas, experiences and partnerships that will enhance current offerings, address gaps or challenges, motivate travel and longer stays and increase year-round visits to the Bay of Quinte Region.
Three winners from our region will be selected to receive a $3,000 grant and a tourism mentorship from experienced professionals across the province. Applications will be accepted from January 30 to February 28, 2020.
