Meet in Toronto - Where Cultures Remix

Pulse is out - DT News is in! Our internal newsletter has a new look and a new name to ensure staff know exactly what they Need to Know (big stuff!); what is Good to Know (interesting stuff!); and will continue to feature the popular Getting to Know You (fun stuff!). Please share your suggestions with Kathy or Rebecca.

Toronto Museum Pass

On Oct 9, DT will launch the Toronto Museum Pass offering savings for consumers at seven museums with 1- and 3-day passes available for purchase on the DT website.

Why Meet in Toronto?

Scott's Farewell

On Thursday, October 12 from 4 to 6 pm, we will host a reception at the DT office to bid farewell to Scott Beck and wish him well in SFO. This is an in-person only event, we hope you can join us! If you are planning to come and have any dietary restrictions, please reach out to Mary-Ruth.

October 30th All Hands

Steering Committee will share the 2024 Business Plan (following its review by our Board). This is being shared in advance of the Business Outlook Forum at which it will be presented to our community stakeholders. For those attending in person, there will also be some Halloween fun, including a costume contest, trivia and more.

Sustainability Committee

How does Destination Toronto perform against our responsibilities towards the climate? DT’s new Green Team is on a mission to find out. Delving into a list of research questions, the Team will uncover which eco-friendly policies and systems we have in place, and what we should implement going forward. Watch this space for updates!
