Promoting Meetings and Conventions to the Mining Industry

Tourism Thunder Bay and The Community Economic Development Commission will have a presence at the Northwestern Ontario Mining Symposium April 8-9, 2008 at the Valhalla Inn (, promoting Thunder Bay as an ideal meeting location for the mining and exploration companies that will be in attendance from across the region, Province and Country.

With a strong exploration environment, Thunder Bay and the Northwestern Ontario region are experiencing an increase in interest and activity by numerous companies involved in the mineral extraction industry.

Tourism Thunder Bay staff will be on hand to discuss Thunder Bay's advantage as a meeting and conference location with companies that have a reason to do business here and encourage them to hold more of their meetings and conferences in the hub of the sector. We'll be distributing the 2008 Meeting and Convention planner to interested firms and letting them know about the services and venues available in the community to assist them in hosting unique corporate events.

This marks Tourism Thunder Bay's shift towards marketing corporate travel to sectors that have a logical reason to hold events in Thunder Bay, including forestry, mining, government, utilities and knowledge based industries such as education and medical sciences.
