Experiential Tourism

Experiential travel, also known as immersion travel, is a form of tourism in which people focus on experiencing a country, city or particular place by actively and meaningfully engaging with its history, people, culture, food and environment. It can often be transformative in nature. RTO 9 works with tourism partners to help develop travel experiences that attract visitors to the South Eastern Ontario region. Workshops and one-on-one coaching opportunities are available to assist our partners in bringing market-ready experiential products to market.

Product Development

Having marketable experiences that are of longer duration in length encourage tourists to come to the region when it is convenient for them. This not only helps to increase visitor spending but creates opportunities for more visitors over the duration of the product lifetime. These can be season-long product offerings or large scale projects, such as strategy, planning, feasibility studies and market research studies.
