image009Hosted by the Musqueaum, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations in Vancouver, BC, the conference brought together Indigenous communities, government agencies, industry, academics, and media from around the world to share and inspire each other through cultural presentations and candid dialogue.

Sessions covered a broad range of topics, from future-casting market and industry trends, to sharing how to best leverage relationships with the media and travel trade. A common theme throughout was the imperative need for genuine partnerships between mainstream and indigenous businesses built upon mutual trust and inter-cultural understanding.



As the conference came to a close, in traditional cultural protocol, the Maori delegation from New Zealand put forward a tono (request) to partner with WINTA to further articulate the principles of the Larrakia Declaration and to host the next indigenous tourism and trade conference in 2017.
