ACAT’S UK Media Event

The Atlantic Canada Agreement on Tourism (ACAT) hosted an Atlantic Canada media event at Sea Containers in London, England on Tuesday, January 30. The annual event provides an opportunity for Atlantic Canada representatives to network with UK media, present 2018 story ideas for general coverage, and generate interest in press trips for the year ahead.

The Brighter Group, ACAT’s in-market media relations firm, invited key journalists from a range of publications including national and regional newspapers, consumer magazines, key trade titles, travel websites and blogs.
