[ARCHIVED] Familiarization Tours 2021

Slave Lake logo Vert_RGB

Once again, the Slave Lake Region Tourism Society is offering your frontline workers a chance to “Familiarize” themselves with some of the tourism highlights this area has to offer. We realize that often our frontline workers are those in first contact with visitors to our area and we believe they are vital ambassadors for tourism in our region. Therefore, we encourage you to give your employees the opportunity to be tourists for a day, where they can sit back and enjoy some of the local sights that they may not be familiar with. This will give them the knowledge to assist tourists when they are asked “What is there to see and do in the area?”
