What are the factors that need to be considered when looking at how your business, your sector, and the industry at large can get up and running again? What are the timelines to consider?

TIA Yukon is inviting tourism businesses and organizations to participate in a focus group series this week. This series will feature six zoom sessions, each of which will highlight a different segment of the industry.

Each session will allow for up to 15 participants and will be facilitated by TIA Yukon Board and staff. Sign-up will be on first come, first served basis.

The schedule is as follows:

Tours & Attractions: Tuesday, May 12 – 10am-11:30am **FULL**
Transportation: (postponed / tba)
Travel Services: Wednesday, May 13 – 10am-11:30pm
Arts, Sports & Events: Wednesday, May 13 – 1pm-2:30pm
Accommodations: Thursday, May 14 – 10am-11:30am
Food & Beverage: Thursday, May 14 – 1pm-2:30pm

You are invited to sign up for the session that best fits your business. Please limit your choice to one session only.

To sign up, please email: info@tiayukon.com and state which session you would like to join. We will send you the registration information and reference material.

Information from these sessions will be used to develop a high level guide to chart a path forward within the perimeters defined by the Chief Medical Officer of Health. It will dovetail with the general re-opening plan once it is announced, and identify needs that may not be incorporated into the plan, and which will require further support.

Those who are unable to join a session will be invited to send their feedback to TIA Yukon via email or video at info@tiayukon.com latest by Thursday May 14, 2020. 3PM. You can find our questionnaire here.
