The second Garden Tourism Conference, held in Toronto, Canada on March 14 & 15, 2011 was a resounding success.

Representing public and private gardens -- from some of the world’s most iconic to modest gems -- and tourism industry constituents -- from tour operators to national and regional destination marketing organizations -- speakers from across Canada and around the world provided one and a half days jam-packed with innovative ideas and thoughts about raising the profile of gardens as tourism generators.

The Conference ended with the inaugural presentation of the Garden Tourism Awards by Canada’s Federal Environment Minister, Peter Kent. For more information about the Garden Tourism Awards and to learn who won what, click on ‘Media’ tab.
