Thank you to everyone who attended the ACTA Ontario Golf and Networking Event!

On Thursday, July 11, 2019 ACTA hosted the 31st Annual Golf Tournament at the Royal Ontario Golf Club in Milton, Ontario. Another popular and sold out event with 144 golfers gathering to have some fun on a summer day and close to 200 people attending the dinner and awards ceremony. The Annual Golf Tournament is a special day for the travel industry to come together for one day and to forget about their competitors and it is also a great opportunity to network and have some fun in the sun! The event brings the industry together to showcase the power of travel industry and a wonderful opportunity to catch up with industry colleagues. Despite a downpour of rain in the afternoon it certainly did not dampen the spirits of the golfers! The ACTA team wore red shirts promoting ACTA’s four pillars - Advocate, Educate, Promote and Connect.
