Tourism sector takes stock at season start
From the Niagara Falls Review:
With new tourism-related services, and the potential for more in the coming years, officials see a bright future for the No. 1 industry in Niagara Falls.
As the traditional tourism season gets underway in the city, many of those involved in the sector are looking forward to seeing if, or how, the new convention centre will help an industry that has suffered some lean years recently.
But with the food and wine expo at the convention centre this weekend, an extension to GO rail service, with discussions continuing on a people-mover system and with the potential for a new 7,000-seat entertainment centre bringing A-list stars to the city in a few years, the long-term prospects look good, they say.
