Biography / History

The Tourism Development Through RecreationEvents was a project which commenced from July 1981 and endedApril 1982. The project aimed at determining the tourist potentialof recreational events in both the City and County of Peterborough.The idea for the project was developed during the 1980 OntarioSummer Games. The impact of the Games, within the region, andacross the province, was quite considerable in terms of drawingattention to the importance of recreational activities for thelocal tourism industry. The general objectives of the programwere: 1) To provide an opportunity to consider the impact thatrecreational events of a regional nature have on the local touristindustry; 2) To become more deliberate in the planning of recreationalevents that are of tourist appeal; 3) To determine the number,type and scale of recreation-tourist events; 4) To provide resourcematerial for organizations interested in giving this tourism componentmore serious consideration; and 5) To increase the tourist potentialof many existing events through this project. As a result of theproject, a twelve month planning calendar was created which outlinedupcoming events. Also a series of recommendations were broughtforth concerning the creation of a new Peterborough Kawartha TourismConvention, the yearly production of the planning calendar, thata clearing house of local tourist accomodations be created, andthat the new Bureau conduct regular meetings to keep local organizersof tourist and recreational events up to date and organized.
