The tourism industry wants to be ready for when Antigonish hosts the 2018 Special Olympics Canada National Summer Games from July 31st to August 4th.
The event is expected to attract more than 3,000 spectators, more than 1,000 athletes, over 400 coaching staff, officials and mission staff and about 600 volunteers.

The sessions are open to local businesses and the general public, covering such topics as Be an Ambassador, Know Your Community and its Product, Aesthetics and Visual Identity and Know your Athletes and Learn about the event. To register your seat at these sessions, email email@example.com
