TORONTO — In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) is embarking on a three-month journey to find the top 150 Hidden Gems across the country. Through the IHG Rewards Club 150th Hidden Gems Contest launched earlier this week, the company is asking Canadians to share their favourite travel spots from coast-to-coast.
From March 1 to May 31, 2017, Canadians can submit their picks for a chance to win one million IHG Rewards Club Points. Two additional monthly winners will receive 50,000 IHG Rewards Club Points, which can be redeemed for hotel stays or merchandise. After submissions close on May 31, IHG will curate the top 150 Hidden Gems to celebrate the nation and inspire summer travel.
“An interesting vacation can happen anywhere. With our curated list of Hidden Gems located across the country, there is no shortage of fascinating experiences to enjoy with family and friends this year,” says Jonathan Lund, regional vice-president, Franchise Performance Support, IHG Canada. “Canada’s 150th birthday is the perfect reason to plan the trip of a lifetime in your own country, and get some well-deserved rest and relaxation along the road to discovery.”
