Riata Tourism + Hospitality

"The Journey is the Destination"

Creating experiences in hospitality and tourism

Located in Western Canada, Riata Tourism is a group of people with expertise, experience and connections in the hospitality and tourism industries. Our projects have included small to medium sized hotels and tourism businesses that are both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal. We have worked with existing businesses to innovate their service offering, streamline operations or re-address their marketing and sales. We have also worked with businesses at the conception stage where pre-planning and development are so critical. 

We believe in creating a win-win for us and our clients; helping them to benefit from the continuing growth of tourism. Our background includes executive level expertise but we are at heart 'boots on the ground' type of folks who are not afraid to get our hands dirty and be the example of customer service that we want our clients to excel at. 

Our office is in Edmonton, Alberta but we have consultants based in Calgary and Vancouver.  Our projects have largely been in BC and Alberta but we are able to work across Canada.

What we do


Knowing that success comes from clarity where do you start? What is the best path to fulfilling your objectives? In pre-planning, we look at your current situation, help you define your success factors and engage your community of stakeholders to set a solid foundation for your business. 

operations + business strategy

Day to Day operations and long term strategy go hand in hand. We can help you write the road map to where you want to go and then put in place the parts, the people and the processes to operationalize the strategies of your road map for the daily managing of the business.

Product development + market readiness

We help you develop and define a product that both fits your objectives and meets the needs of the marketplace. We help determine everything from the product and service offering to staffing and pricing, and we manage the implementation of the resources to make it happen.  

financial reporting 

With our sister company, Riata Partners, we provide financial modeling and preparation services including investment planning and pay-back scenarios, pro-forma revenue forecasting, budgets and the support of bookkeeping implementation. 

strategic marketing + sales

How do you take your business to market in the best possible way? You can’t afford the time or resources to do everything and that’s where strategic Sales and Marketing fits in. We identify and plan the right opportunities to drive your business. 

people + community 

We can facilitate engagement with local communities, workforce or investors to help you gain their insights and to educate them on the project goals and plan. Our experience includes employee and leadership recruitment and selection, customer service training and monitoring of on-site management. 

Do what you do well so they will want to see it again, and bring their friends.
