Seekers media is a thriving network with three distinct online communities: SnowSeekers, ZenSeekers and FestivalSeekers.com. He is an explorer at heart and strives to have the public do the same.

The annual Growing the North Conference focuses on encouraging our local leaders and entrepreneurs to examine and develop economic opportunities in Northwest Alberta and Northeast British Columbia. “As a Destination Marketing Organization, GPRTA understands the importance of leveraging digital marketing channels and content in order to create development opportunities and Jim Barr “sets the bar” so to speak” said James Leppan, Executive Director of the Grande Prairie Regional Tourism Association.
