The 24 finalists for the 2020 Sport Tourism Canada PRESTIGE Awards will be honoured during an upcoming one-hour webcast on March 4th. Originally scheduled to take place during Sport Events Congress 2020, the postponement of that event due to COVID-19 also pushed out the announcement of the PRESTIGE recipients.
Representing a wide cross-section of the country’s sport tourism industry, the finalists, in eight different categories, are being recognized for events, organizations, sponsors and volunteers across the country – from Victoria in British Columbia to Cape Breton in Nova Scotia.
The PRESTIGE (Program Recognizing Exceptional Sport Tourism Initiatives, Games & Events) Awards, now in their 14th year, have honoured exceptional sport events, people and organizations since they began in 2007.
Olympian, World Cup medallist and CBC Broadcaster Kelly VanderBeek will host the online PRESTIGE Awards, presented by Saskatoon Sports Tourism.
Mark it in your calendars:
The webcast will be available on demand on Thursday, March 4 at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern). It will also be part of the on-demand content for the upcoming Sport Events Congress April 7-9, 2021.
