Join IGNITE on November 16 where we will identify barriers, support entrepreneurs and develop new opportunities for the industry. Preparation help, ideation & pitch workshops, will be provided at both locations.

During the 6 hour event, you will get access to support from IGNITE, Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia (TIANS), and Destination Eastern and Northumberland Shores (DEANS). There will be experts on site to help guide you, and industry leaders to give you insight into the sectors. By the end of the event, you will have the chance to commercialize your ideas that you bring to the pitch.

The pitch competition is open to tourism product pitches of any kind. For inspiration think of the treasures that make Nova Scotia unique, eating lobster, stargazing, visiting beautiful beaches, staying at coastal accommodations, hiking and more. Before attending, it is highly encouraged to develop your pitches and research your ideas.

The event will have ideation and pitch workshops, followed by a round of competition for the winners to advance to the TIANS Tourism Summit from December 1-3, 2019. Cash prizes and professional consultation are also up for grabs to help you develop your tourism product!

Lunch, refreshments and beverages will be provided.

For more information, contact a member of the IGNITE team!
