Ottawa Tourism Launches Demonstration Vacation

Ottawa Tourism Launches Demonstration Vacation














Ottawa, ON (Vocus/PRWEB) April 01, 2011

Ottawa Tourism today launched a new getaway package, called the Demonstration Vacation, to encourage Canadians and others to visit and exert their freedom of speech while in Canada’s capital.

The package includes two nights’ accommodation at one of a variety of hotels, a permit, two blank placards, two one-inch wooden sticks and a Sharpie (black only).

“We’ve done the research,” says Noel Buckley, the President and CEO of Ottawa Tourism. “There’s a real demand for people to express themselves peacefully on Parliament Hill. If we can make it easier for them to book their stays through our website, it’s a win-win situation!”

Ottawa Tourism already offers a variety of packages for people looking to rest and recharge (Sip, Savour and Spa) learn more about Canada (Get to Know Your Canada) or enjoy the Canadian Tulip Festival in May (Tulip Celebration) and the Demonstration Vacation simply adds to the mix.

“The announcement of a federal election just days ago was a happy coincidence,” says Buckley. “We feel there is a definite market among advocates of free speech for the one-stop-shopping experience Ottawa Tourism is offering with the Demonstration Vacation.”

This is just the latest creative venture from Ottawa Tourism, which earlier this year revamped its website and partnered with the City of Ottawa and local developer Purple Forge on the Discover Ottawa app, available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Ottawa Tourism provides industry leadership and destination marketing to service the travel media and attract visitors, tours and conventions to Ottawa and Canada’s Capital Region. Visit Ottawa Tourism at their attached website.
