"We (Vin Gogh Paint and Sip) are so excited about working with Tourism Calgary. One of our favourite campaigns is Calgary 48. It speaks to everything Calgary has to offer and how easy it is to come and enjoy our beautiful city. One of the best things about partnering with Tourism Calgary is the accessibility and affordability for a small business to feel like an equal at the table with some very big players. And more than that is the respect, support, engagement and enthusiasm from the staff for us and our small business. I'm excited to see where this new partnership will take all of us."
- Brenda Mahoney, Vin Gogh Paint and Sip
“Skyline Luge Calgary’s relationship with Tourism Calgary has benefited our company beyond expectation. Since arriving into the Calgary landscape in 2013 Tourism Calgary has been there for us whenever we needed their advice, or information on or about the Calgary tourism market.
With their willingness to engage, meet and talk with us in an effort to help us enter the Calgary market with our best foot going forward it has been a great plus for Skyline Luge Calgary when starting up our operation in Calgary in 2013 to have an organization like Tourism Calgary around to help.
We have great faith in Tourism Calgary ability to help its partners due to our own dealings with Tourism Calgary. We look forward to the future in Calgary and cementing our relationship not only with Tourism Calgary and industry partners but also operators both domestic and international that we are now “that one step closer too” due to our partnership and relationship with Tourism Calgary.”
