Why a Tourism Café?

IM002412For over a decade Nancy Arsenault, a product and market developer, Todd Lucier, a geek who lives in the woods at their family-owned tourism biz, and Celes Davar, an experience broker have collaborated to deliver transformative experiential travel training programs across Canada and over 28 Edge of the Wedge course for the Gros Morne Institute for Sustainable Tourism.

In 2011, Todd and Nancy responded to the growing demand for experiential tourism training, designed to revitalize businesses and destinations alike from the lens of the traveller. Building on their Tourism Cafe blog, they formed a company called the Tourism Café Canada Ltd with a business model that is founded on collaborating partnerships and incorporating the many operators and educators in the field who can bring the right expertise to the table.

We aren’t just talking heads. We work in the tourism industry and understand the challenge of providing meaningful, memorable experiences in the real world! Collectively, we bring a wide range of tourism experience, industry knowledge, research, and training expertise to the table – and we know others who do the same. We can see the differences that are being made by companies who attend our training and it is exciting and requests from around the world are rolling in!

To stretch our collective voice and connect with people interested in experiential travel, we started the Tourism Café  Blog to stimulate and share conversations that matter.

Here, we share our thoughts in:

  • blog posts
  • audio podcasts
  • video interviews
  • photo libraries

From time to time, we invite special guests to share their perspectives on tourism and we invite you to join in the conversation. Drop us a note, leave comments on our posts and invite yourself to the table. This is intended to be an open forum for conversations that matter. We hope you join us.

~ Nancy and Todd

Hi Nancy, Todd, and Celes,

I found you via the wonderful world of twitter. My name is Joseph Diaz and I’m the Co-founder of AFAR. We are a media company 100% dedicated to international (non U.S.), experiential travel. AFAR inspires travelers to immerse themselves in authentic experiences that create deep connections between the reader, place, and local culture. We are launching a print magazine in August that will bring a fresh perspective to travel and will compete with Conde Nast Traveler, Travel+Leisure, and Natl Geo Traveler.

I wanted to introduce myself because I feel like we share a mindset and trend that is only accelerating. Equally important is that we are the platform from which your clients (tour operators) can reach their ideal customer. I have much to share with you about AFRA-our readers, editorial, web strategy and the AFAR Foundation. I’d love to send you a media kit to give you a more informed idea of AFAR. Contact me via; [email protected] or 917 210 1733. Thanks much.

Its my wish to become a Canadian citizen but unfortunately their policies to give residency is very strict.  I dont understand why are they doing so when their country is not at al populated and they need professionals.
