Worldhost

Background

WorldHost (then SuperHost) was first introduced in 1985 to prepare British Columbia’s tourism workforce to host the world at Expo 86. Since then, over 450,000 workers and students have participated in SuperHost training and helped establish BC’s world-class reputation for service.

The program’s excellence is recognized internationally. After an extensive search for the best in the world, American Express selected SuperHost as its customer service training program for 10 Asian countries. In addition to these, tourism agencies in England, Wales, Scotland, New Zealand, Australia, Alaska, Puerto Rico, Ontario, Northwest Territories, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland also have the license rights for SuperHost.

The SuperHost product family includes dynamic and interactive workshops that provide information and tools to improve the quality of customer services. All of our customers, whether they are from across the border, across the ocean, or across the street, deserve service that goes the extra mile. SuperHost workshops are a step in the right direction.

Tourism Dawson Creek is the delivery organization for SuperHost in Dawson Creek, Pouce Coupe and Tumbler Ridge, BC.
