Meetings incentive provides boost to hotel and motel industry

The provincial government, in partnership with the New Brunswick Hotel Association and the Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick, has developed a program to support the hotel and motel industry by encouraging an increase in business bookings.

The Meeting Incentive Program will provide a 20 per cent discount for bookings that meet specific criteria, for business-related travel and for related expenditures of up to $5,000 per booking for eligible expenses, including meeting rooms, food and audio-visual equipment.

“Our hotel and motel industries contribute to the economic recovery, financial stability and growth of our province,” said Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Tammy Scott-Wallace. “The Meetings Incentive Program will stimulate corporate travel, help rebuild the meetings and conventions market and provide operators with additional support to get back on their feet post pandemic.”
