Linda Wilson - 2016 Travel GuideCornwall Ontario -The 2016 Travel Guide for Cornwall and the Counties has fresh clean look with a new, sleek size.

The guide is popular with tourists looking to the visit the region, and the improvements this year reflect comments from previous visitors. New this year is the addition of easy to follow charts, maps, and helpful descriptions that allow readers to easily discover pertinent information about each listing.

“We’re always trying to improve our annual Travel Guide,” says Linda Wilson, Executive Director of CCT. “We felt that it was important to incorporate additional information in the guide that gave readers more details of our region’s assets, so they can easily determine which accommodations, attractions, recreational activities, etc. are right for them.”

The 2016 edition is a partially bilingual guide, with descriptive text and introductions all appearing in both official languages. “Producing the guide in this bilingual format is more economical than producing a stand-alone French edition,” Wilson adds.

CCT staff will be on hand at a variety of trade shows this year to distribute the new guide and have valuable face-to-face time with target audiences. The organization has increased trade show attendance to 5 shows for 2016, from 3 shows in 2015.

  • Salon du Golf (Montreal) March 11-13
  • Salon Aventure et plein air (Montreal) April 3-4
  • Travel and Leisure Show (Ottawa) April 9-10

"Cornwall and the Counties is becoming a popular destination for people looking for active vacations," says Ms. Wilson. "More Canadians looking to stay closer to home this year, and the region offers a variety of amenities, not the least of which is the Waterfront Trail and St. Lawrence River."

Tourism had a positive impact of $221 million on the local economy in 2015, according to Cornwall and the Counties Tourism staff.
