As champion of Calgary’s stakeholder-led and endorsed Destination Strategy, Tourism Calgary works to develop the destination for the benefit of visitors and Calgarians. Cities that focus on destination development have diversified economies, a powerful network of connected and strategically aligned partners, collaboration with government and engaged citizen advocates. This translates to a robust visitor economy, pride of place for residents and a sought-after destination for travellers. Tourism Calgary also works in collaboration with industry partners to develop year-round, export-ready tourism experiences that create vibrancy and support the visitor economy.
To recognize city builders, community contributors and destination influencers that are contributing to the success of Calgary’s Destination Strategy, Tourism Calgary developed the Ultimate Host City Designation.
