Chatham-Kent Tourism Operator Covid-19 Tool Kits
CK Tourism is offering free "Tourism Operator Covid-19 Tool Kits" to all tourism operators in Chatham-Kent. Each tool kit contains valuable resources on training, business support, and funding opportunities, a VisitCK branded re-usable non-medical face mask, locally produced hand sanitizer, information signs for businesses, and details about a new global tourism consumer confidence program called the "Safe Travels" program. The program is a certification that tourism operators are encouraged to easily apply for, showcasing they are following global health and safety protocols. It is meant to build confidence in visitors and residents, and ensure everyone feels safe while shopping, dining, staying overnight, or visiting an attraction across the world, including in Chatham-Kent.
Thanks to the more than 150 businesses that came out to our contactless pick-up events and picked one up! If you did not receive one during our pop-up events in September, there is still time to get one. You can arrange for one by emailing a contact name, business name, phone number and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Safe Travels Stamp
What is it? This program allows travellers to recognize tourism businesses and organizations around the world which have adopted health and hygiene global standardized protocols - so consumers can experience "Safe Travels". It is recognized by the World Travel & Tourism Council.
Why register your tourism business? CK Tourism is encouraging local operators to build confidence in their visitors and guests by showing off this stamp, and showcasing that they are a part of this "Safe Travels" global movement.
