TNS is looking for marketing partners who can transform established thinking and inspire messaging and strategies that will motivate travel to Nova Scotia and encourage visitor spending to contribute to the $4 billion goal. A critical aspect to achieving success will be to develop a strategic marketing plan that highlights Nova Scotia’s competitive advantages. This will allow Nova Scotia to maximize its marketing opportunities by leveraging trade and industry partnerships. Demonstrated performance and Return on Investment (ROI) will be a key component to decision-making. TNS is looking to select marketing partners who will create an innovative and integrated approach to meeting its marketing objectives. The RFP is structured to be flexible and responsive to market demand to enable best in class marketing partnerships.
You can embrace the spirit of the perfect road trip here. A car is optional, because you can also bike, hike, sail or paddle your way to spontaneous discovery. Throw away your map, and find as much freedom in the stops in-between as in the places you planned to go. Located in eastern Canada and almost completely surrounded by ocean, the province of Nova Scotia is a place where you can feel your pace fall in sync with the rhythm of the sea, as the clean salt air breathes life into an afternoon. Immerse yourself in culture that ranges from traditional to avant-garde, from bagpipes to world-class golf.
