1 For year the en ding March 31 st, 2014 Message from the President: Chris Bowman, Flyin g Steamshovel The past year presented many opportunities for the organization, and we continue to work in a collaborative and strategic manner. Some of our highlights include: This year also marks our 7 th year of the organization and allowed us the opportunity to partake in a strategic planning session in association with Tourism BC/Destination BC to ensure that the organization continues to meet the needs of its stakeholders. We received the Kootenay Rockies Tourism Award for best Community Initiative in association with Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism Our winter in town Shuttle Bus was our most successful project ever! We transported 19,000 people and had a direct impact on the economy of Rossland. The shuttle service also meant that we had group bookings from group tour operators for the first time ever. One of our projects led us to become the most Google photo toured community in the world! Rossland has almost doubled accommodation revenue in the 7 years of our existence. Successfully doubled the RMI Resort Municipality Initiative (RMI) funding for future years by ensuring that accommodators registered for the Destination BC listing program. Executive Summary Last year was our strongest year ever! We said that last year and we can say it again! We have now been tracking the Hotel Revenue since 2006 which allows us to have a good base of data to work with. The opening of Grey Mountain, establishment of an in town shuttle service and great events were some of the largest contributing factors to our continued success.

2 Accommodation Revenue 2014 Annual Report Tourism Rossland is still one of the smallest Destination Management Organizations in the province, and successfully leverages the core funding to a budget of over $340,000. By successfully partnering and collaborating with stakeholders we are able to really spread the marketing reach for the entire community. Tourism Indicators Based on the Municipal and Regional District Tax (MRDT) statistics Rossland had its best year ever! $600, Rossland Accommodation Revenue 2013 & Average based on the MRDT Tax $500, $400, $300, $200, $100, Average 2013 $- Month 2

Income $400,000 $350,000 $340,078 $300,000 $250,000 $200,000 $150,000 $100,000 $50,000 $- $108,679 $74,178 $88,900 $86,657 $67,043 $63,500 $49,697 $61,197 $23,804 $38,500 $27,000 $10,126 $15,188 $2,647 $7,064 Municipal and Regional District Tax Grants Pay to Play Projects Red Resort Association Other Income $220,894 $163,208 Total 2011/ / /2014 3

4 One of the biggest increases in funding for this year was the Municipal and Regional District Tax (previously called the Additional Hotel Room Tax) which due to the increase in hotel stays increaseted by over $7,000. Pay to Play increased substantially as we created more opportunities for partnering with local stakeholders to create cooperative projects. The Red Mountain Resort Association continues to be a large contributor at $63,500. This long term funding is a critical aspect of the organizations overall income. The funding is made up of contributions from Red Mountain Resort ($10,000) and the remaining from all property owners (condo owners, town home owners, single family residential owners and lot owners) who contribute if their property is located within the RRA s designated boundary. This funding was up considerably this year as many outstanding accounts from previous years were paid. It is expected that this funding will be at about $45,000 per year in the future. Tourism Rossland took over the administration of the Resort Association and this has meant a significant increase in the amount that is available for Tourism Rossland. By putting together a cohesive system for managing the association and reporting to members, the administrative work is now much simpler. Additionally by handling the resort association Tourism Rossland has saved the 10% admin fee previously paid to a contractor which for this year would have been $6,350. Additionally, the essential funding from the City of Rossland provided a grant of $28,500 towards the operation of the organization. With funding from our three key partners (City of Rossland, MRDT, and the Red Resort Association) we are able to leverage additional funding from other stakeholders and granting organizations including the Columbia Basin Trust, Kootenay Rockies Tourism and Tourism BC. Grants were also up considerably this year in large part because of the work that was done on the Resort Municipality Initiative projects which were completed this year, including the in-town shuttle bus. 4

More details on these projects can be found below. The ability to leverage core funding was really maximized this year. As in previous years, the HR component was matched by grants received by the organization. also be noted that a significant proportion of the HR budget is actually marketing as the Executive Director does most of the marketing herself including: media hosting, social media, press releases, website updates etc. It should 5
