Hosting an event or social after your meetings are just as important as the meetings itself. Ensuring that your guests return home with a positive experience is how you’ll ensure growth and have attendees return to your event year after year. These Downtown Kelowna suggestions can accommodate from 10 to 1750 attendees and are walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops, and evening entertainment venues. So your guests can keep the evening going after your social is complete.

Have a larger group but want to include some of the smaller venues? Why not create a multi-venue event (you could use all 5 of these suggestions as they are all walking distance from each other) – create a progressive social, where you break up your entire group down into smaller groups each starting at one space to enjoy food and drink then rotate to the next venue.
