Media Visits

Tourism Kelowna’s Communications Department offers an extensive visiting journalists program. In addition to coordinating individual and group tours year-round, our team can recommend or set up accommodations, activities, and interviews and provide information and ideas for content.

To allow our team to aide you in your visit to Kelowna and suit the specific needs of your assignment, please complete the Media Information Form and submit it to our Communications team several weeks in advance of your proposed visit.

The Media Information Form should include the following:

  • Description of outlet / audience / program with circulation and additional demographic details
  • Proposed visit dates
  • Logistical requirements for the visit
