Cornwall region on display at Outdoor Adventure ShowMarch 13, 2019
Cornwall Ontario – When it comes to outdoor experiences, the Cornwall region has it all. From fishing and camping to cycling, golf, scuba diving, race events and more, there are memorable experiences for virtually every adventure seeker.
Cornwall Tourism and the St. Lawrence Parks Commission will be spreading that message at the Outdoor Adventure Show this coming weekend at the Palais des congrès in Montreal.
The Outdoor Adventure Show is Quebec’s largest showcase of outdoor gear and adventure travel experiences and it is well attended by people who are active in running, cycling and water sports. It marks the fourth year that Cornwall has been an exhibitor at the show.
“Our goal is to get more visitors to come visit Cornwall and explore all that we have to offer,” said Kevin Lajoie, Tourism Coordinator. “Visitors who discover Cornwall are often amazed at how green our city is and they are impressed with our parks, trails and waterfront.”
Camping and beaches are another popular topic for show attendees.
“We have so many amazing outdoor amenities in the region and the Outdoor Adventure Show allows us to connect directly with potential visitors,” said Susan LeClair, Acting Director, Marketing & Customer Experience with St. Lawrence Parks Commission. “It’s a great venue to showcase our campgrounds, beaches and attractions along with the many other great outdoor offerings in the area.”
The exciting two-day event offers a large selection of over 200 exhibits offering information on a wide range of outdoor activities and travel destinations. Popular show features include a whitewater demo pool with dynamic kayak, scuba demonstrations and other interactive exhibits.
Cornwall’s booth number is 1308.
In addition to promoting cycling and hiking opportunities and the Waterfront Trail, the Outdoor Adventure Show also offers a chance to highlight the many outdoor race events hosted in Cornwall such as the Cornwall Triathlon, St. Lawrence Marathon, the MS Bike Tour, Cornwall Waterfest and numerous fishing tournaments.
“These events attract a large number of visitors to Cornwall every year and there’s an opportunity to build on that,” said Mr. Lajoie.
New Maps and Guides
Attendees will be able to pick up a copy of the 2019 Visitor Guide, hot off the presses, in addition to cycling maps and other useful information.
