August 9, 2019

Cape Breton University has announced the creation of a new tourism institute that will use research gained from global experts to help local operators learn best practices. CBC reports that the institute will host professional development sessions for local operators, and that it also plans to host two conferences, the second of which is slated for 2021 and will be international in nature. "We're imagining large groups of industry professionals, practitioners, academic researchers around the world who are interested in that meeting between the best of Cape Breton Island tourism and the best of the world tourism," said Keith Brown, co-director of the World Tourism Institute and a professor in CBU’s MBA program.
