We’ve been busy at the Chamber office making plans for 2017.
A trip to China is in the works for September 2017 and all Gravenhurst Chamber members are invited to take part. We’ve secured a good price and inclusive trip working with Indus Travel and Gravenhurst’s The Travel Agent Next Door. The cost is $2,490 including taxes, flight, accommodations, tours and most breakfasts and dinners. (Non-members can take part for an extra $200).
With the Maple Leaf Education System planning to open a Chinese/English school on the old Muskoka Centre Property in 2018, a recent Visa report saying Chinese visitors are second only to Americans with the amount they spend annual travelling in Canada and of course, the growing numbers at Bethune House – a trip to China makes sense. Visit the Great Wall of China, Tian An Men Square and much more.
This is not a trade mission, but instead a familiarity tour to help Gravenhurst businesspeople learn about our Chinese visitors. We may be better able to serve this growing group of visitors, if we better understand their culture.
It will also be a fun group trip where you can network and socialize with other Chamber members. More information can be found on the Chamber website here and information will be available at our AGM on March 8 and again at an information session on April 6.
