Manitoba ready for tourism bounce back, but can’t come soon enough for operators

Sep 13, 2022

for operators Back to video “The tourism industry was put to the test last year, but that resilience will pay dividends”, said Colin Ferguson, President and CEO of Travel Manitoba, the Crown corporation responsible for drawing visitors to Manitoba. “The tourism industry in Manitoba has adapted to meet changing visitor expectations, and they’ve created new and unique world class experiences that will draw visitors.” The Winnipeg Sun's Daily Headline News Sign up to receive daily headline news from the Winnipeg SUN, a division of Postmedia Network Inc.

I definitely feel like that we’re moving in the right direction but I’ve been quoted way too many times that it’s going to take us longer to find whatever the new normal is going to be. People still have to be comfortable going out and we have to be comfortable working downtown, going back to work and going to places for lunch and travelling again.

Advertisement 4 Article content “The hotels in Manitoba are incredibly proud of what they contribute on a daily basis to the bottom line of the province, in terms of employing people, collecting taxes (etc.). We believe we fill a need in small communities all across the province and we believe that’s not going to go away. We just need some time to get our feet back under us.” Late last year, Travel Manitoba hired Tourism Economics, a leader in industry analysis, to provide an economic forecast for tourism in Manitoba. That forecast was updated recently, and the results were positive: Manitoba is now showing a return to 2019 visitor spending levels by 2023, rather than 2024 in earlier forecasts. “This is largely due to improved outlooks for local and domestic travel,” said Geoff Lacher, Senior Economist with Tourism Economics, adding that Manitoba had outperformed the nation during the pandemic.
