The Newell Regional Tourism Association is a collective organization of member businesses and social organizations with the intent of creating awareness and promotion of local County of Newell events. This is particularly useful for helping to promote the local tourism industry throughout the County.
The Newell Regional Tourism Association or NRTA was established in 2007 and has been growing since its creation. It now has 25 members and has been providing marketing for events and its member organizations throughout the County of Newell, and as far as Travel Alberta. There is a growing demand for tourism destinations in Alberta, and the NRTA is attempting to coordinate many others in the County of Newell to ensure that our communities do not miss potential opportunities.
If you or your business/organization is interested in joining the NRTA, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org About the Newell Region
There are lots of exciting events in the Newell region to keep you entertained throughout the year. The winter months have been filled with curling, music concerts, dinners and fundraisers. The Newell Regional Tourism Association encourages everyone to participate in as many events as possible.
