Canadian Travel Talk Show
Tourism talk show is broadcast live from self isolation in Canada
“Wow!”, “Brilliant”, “Great Show!”, “Excellent information” and “We need more of this!”. Just some of the comments about the “EH? Travel Talk Show”.
Our Canadian Travel Talk Show is broadcast live from self isolation in British Columbia Canada. Every Tuesday night at 7 PM (pst) Colin and I and a special guest connect on Facebook Live, practicing our physical distancing, so to discuss the issues facing tourism, travel and small town Canada as we navigate our way around a new reality.
Why EH? Canadian Travel Talk Show
In the beginning of the COVID 19 pandemic we were receiving emails and phone calls from clients every day with questions? The clients indicated they were operating with blinders on. They were scared? Where is the direction and leadership from the tourism associations? It seems they were receiving very little constructive communication? In the meantime, their bills were piling up and the landslide of cancellations was crushing them. To be a brick and mortar tourism business just got a lot harder in COVID 19.
What Can We Do?
Privately operated, we have a voice, a voice without political spin. Because we have a unique voice, a bank of knowledge to draw on, and resources to tap into, we have information which may help our friends in the tourism industry. In many ways we are well connected to the front line tourism businesses.
The Voices Just Got Louder
The voices of our clients got louder as days passed on by. This prompted us to look for answers. We called on the experts, futurists, strategists from around the world, as well as, we reached out to people on the front line of tourism and in different sectors of the industry to join us in providing some insight into solving the what, why, how, who and when of tourism under the cloud of COVID 19.
Off We Go Into the World Wide Web
April 2020 was our first month of hosting our Canadian travel talk show. Firstly, we reached out to some of our fellow tourism and travel partners and presented our idea to them and asked if they would like to be a guest on the talk show. To date we are booked with guests until mid August 2020! Some are saying we should have 2 shows a week and/or form some guest panels of experts. We know right!?
Growing a Canadian Travel Talk Show
“EH? Travel Talk Show ” is morphing into something better every week. We are developing our on-air sets for our live shows, working on the format, experimenting in creating special tourism and travel features, as well as, establishing our very own Canadian on-air personalities. It is something we are enjoying while in self isolation. The connecting with people. It is powerful.
The gratification we get from the talk show is knowing that we are at least starting a conversation and answering some of the tough questions our clients are asking. We are providing front line tourism businesses with ideas discussing strategy, trends, and tips.
First 3 Canadian Travel Talk Show Broadcasts
In the month of April we were joined by 3 special guests on our Canada travel talk show. Each guest brought a new outlook on the state of the tourism industry and small and rural Canada. Not all was bad news either, as we wanted to discuss positive solutions, ideas and out-of-the-box thinking. Because, in the new normal, the old playbook is out the window and a new playbook needs to be developed. Things are going to be very different when it comes to the tourism landscape, travel habits and travel restrictions moving forward.
