News from the DMF

Our local Destination Marketing Fund, a sub committee of GPRTA, has been working on a number of projects to help promote tourism to Grande Prairie and Region. Two recent examples are as an exhibition partner along with GPRTA for the Itchiku Kubota exhibit at the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie and the sponsoring of Amazing Race Canada Host, Jon Montgomery, as the opening speaker for the 2019 Growing the North Conference!
