Tourism research delegates visit NC

Travel Tourism delegates

On Sept. 23, NC hosted delegates of the Travel and Tourism Research Association (TTRA), Canadian Chapter who were meeting in Niagara Falls for their annual conference. The group toured the winery, brewery, greenhouse and food labs, where presentations were made by NC staff on student engagement, innovation and partnerships. The annual meeting of TTRA featured a presentation by NC’s Dr. Paul Willie (“a look at strategies and tactics to increase revenue generation in the highly competitive golf industry”)  and the college was a bronze sponsor of the event.
