Millet visitor staff attend major travel show May 8 and 9

Crafting Remarkable Travel Experiences

The Millet Visitor Information summer staff attended the Alberta Visitor Information Providers Sprint training and Showcase on May 8 to 9 to renew our annual accreditation as Visitor Services/Travel Counselors.

As of Tuesday, May 22, we will be open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Feel free to come down and visit; our staff are fully equipped to assist you with your travel planning questions, as well as to provide travel information, such as the Free Alberta maps and new Official Guide to Camping in Alberta.

During the training sessions, our staff learned about over 70 attractions located all across the province. Staff learned how to drive two wheeled segways at the River Valley Adventure booth –an Edmonton experience which we highly recommend! We also recommend the new GyPSy Guide app, which acts as a tour guide within your own car. Be sure to check out Battle River Train Excursions. Thank you to Alpine Helicopter tours for giving our staff the opportunity to through a familiarization tours on your helicopter, which we hope to be able to take advantage of to be able to tell our own personal experience.

The Millet & District Museum partnered with Millet in Bloom, and Millet Tourism and hosted their own Town of Millet Booth, where attendees where given the new Town of Millet Visitor Guides and encouraged to plant a pansy. The staff from over 60 Visitor Information Centers will be following the progress of their flowers on our Facebook page and posting their community events. These flowers will be planted on May 31 in the School Bell Kiosk garden and cared for by the summer staff, as part of our partnership with the Communities in Bloom program.

Visit us at our center at 5120 50th St. for more information about attractions and events around Alberta. Or, send us your questions on our Visit Millet Facebook or Twitter accounts. Our staff regularly monitor these accounts during the day, and attempt to answer within 24 hours. We can also be seen at our mobile booth during town events. Look for our red jackets, provided through funding from the 2017 Visitor Services Innovation Fund, Alberta Culture and Tourism. We are excited to help you with all your Alberta travel needs this summer!
