On a cold, sunny morning, I meet with the president of Brown and the president and CEO of Mansfield Tours in Victoria.
They’re not exactly the same company.
Mansfield is based in Montreal, but the company’s headquarters are in the U.K. Brown is based primarily in Toronto, but its headquarters are a few kilometres away.
The two companies’ CEOs don’t speak to each other.
The trip is meant to be an informal networking event between two businesses who are known to travel together.
The tour is part of a B-corp effort to promote its business and tourism credentials, with an emphasis on its Vancouver location.
The Vancouver-based company’s tourism advisory group is set to launch on March 6.
In the past, Mansfield has done business in places such as France, Switzerland, Belgium and New Zealand, but not this time.
“It’s an opportunity to connect with the B.CA. tourism community and offer some insight into our work and what we can do for you in B.B.C.,” said Mansfield’s chief marketing officer, Andrew Hickey.
Hickey, who has been with Mansfield for about two years, said the B-Corp tour will help to build on the company.
“B.A.C.-wide travel is growing,” he said.
“Our goal is to help people understand the B.-C.
tourism landscape and how we can help.
We want to give people the confidence to travel.”
For the past six years, Mansford has hosted tours of B.S.C., the United States and Japan.
The company was originally founded in 2002 by John Mansfield, a former head of the National Parks Service in British Columbia.
The business expanded in 2014 to include a Vancouver office and a Toronto office.
B.A., which stands for British American Association, is a trade organization that represents the business of British American tourism and hospitality.
It has a membership of about 150,000 people.
The B.L.C.’s Ministry of Tourism launched a B.-B.T. (British Lower Mainland Tourism) program last year.
The program, which allows B.I.T.-educated residents to take advantage of the Bancroft National Forest and Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, is part and parcel of the Tourism Growth Initiative.
“We are looking forward to working with Tourism Growth to develop a Bancropt Tour in Vancouver,” said Tourism Minister Jim Bradley in a statement.
Tourism Canada said the goal of the program is to provide “access to B.R.I.’s natural beauty and culture” and “access for visitors from around the world.” “
Tourism Canada is a leading international partner in the development of Bancrap Tours.”
Tourism Canada said the goal of the program is to provide “access to B.R.I.’s natural beauty and culture” and “access for visitors from around the world.”
Tourism Canada says the Banchrop Tour will also provide “an opportunity for Canadians to connect and exchange experiences with Bancrosses and their community, and to develop their own unique Bancrotts.”
The Banchrip Tour, which has been in existence since the 1970s, began in the 1970’s.
It is open to the public.
Tourists are invited to take part in a five-day tour of the province’s history, with stops in Vancouver, Vancouver, Kelowna, Thunder Bay, Prince George and B.H.O.T., as well as in the Lower Mainlands and the Bering Sea.
There is no charge to take the tour.
It’s also open to non-residents and is not recommended for children under age 14.
