Staycation Expo & 2018/2019 Visitor Guide Launched


WINDSOR, ON – Here at Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island (TWEPI), we continually look for opportunities to promote our local tourism industry. The “Windsor Essex Staycation Expo”, in partnership with Devonshire Mall, on April 27-28, 2018, encourages local residents to explore their own backyard. Mall patrons get to learn from experts and discover things to do and places to see throughout Windsor Essex. From craft beer and wineries to cultural delights and summer festivals, our exhibits inside the Mall will focus on “Where Can WE Take You” within our region.

“Collaboration is an essential building block to growing tourism in our region. Through this event, Devonshire Mall has once again generously opened its doors to welcome us and our partners in the local tourism industry,” said Gordon Orr, CEO of Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island. “This weekend, we have the incredible opportunity to showcase our region to thousands of local residents.”

“Devonshire Mall is pleased to be able to partner with Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island to help promote all of the wonderful tourism opportunities that our region has to offer,” said Chris Savard, General Manager of Devonshire Mall. “We know our customers and tenants look forward to this event each year, and as the busiest building in Windsor Essex, we view our partnership with TWEPI as a true win-win.”

At the event, TWEPI debuted the 2018/2019 Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island Official Visitor Guide featuring the Destination Marketing Organization’s brand re-launch. “The new Visitor Guide takes on a fresh approach, focusing on experiences and features less copy and more blog-style photography,” said Orr.
