A mobile discount pass that allows people visiting Winnipeg to check out local attractions has been launched as a way to stimulate the city’s tourism industry post-COVID lockdowns.
Economic Development Winnipeg’s marketing director Tyler Walsh explains the Winnipeg Attractions Pass provides access to five destinations and offers up to 35 percent off individual admissions.
Here, Walsh shares how the Winnipeg Attractions Pass benefits northerners making the trip down to the capital.
“That’s one thing we are really excited to get this pass out there to our friends in Northern Manitoba because, as you said, there are lots of people that come in for weekends and that come in for trips or appointments. I think this is a great, affordable way for people to experience Winnipeg as a tourist. I imagine many of your listeners have probably been to some of these places but you know, this is an opportunity for them to get together with their families and go to some of these great attractions. These attractions have done a really good job of always having new and exciting things seen so it’s a real opportunity for folks all over Manitoba.”
