News from the DMF

Our local Destination Marketing Fund, a sub committee of GPRTA, helps promote tourism to Grande Prairie and Region!  They consist of hotels and campgrounds that charge a daily fee on their respective accommodation rates.

These funds are used to market Grande Prairie & Region. Examples can be sponsorship opportunities, local event promotions, and community involvement. Their main goal is to be contributors in increasing tourism to Grande Prairie & Region.

For more information on what the DMF is, check out their website
Grande Prairie Region Destination Properties participated in this year's Food & Beverage Expo at Evergreen Park!

Executive Member of the Month

Reach new heights in guest comfort at the Podollan Inn & Spa, Grande Prairie’s premier full-service boutique-style hotel. As an independently owned accommodation, they do things a little differently than their chain-style counterparts. Service here is a little more personal, a little more chic and a little more luxurious with each return visit.

Complete your stay by relaxing at The L Spa and Wellness Centre and enjoy a delicious meal from Jax Grill & Lounge !
