We could all use a little escape from the everyday. With the return of in-person conferences and events, delegates can do just that and take advantage of all that Kelowna has to offer before and after their conferences.

Play where you Stay


Best Western Plus Kelowna Hotel & Suites

With a wealth of experiences for all ages and abilities, families will jump at the chance to accompany their loved ones to their next conference.

Located just a short drive from both the airport and downtown Kelowna, the Kanata Kelowna Hotel & Conference Centre not only offers exceptional conference and event spaces for attendees, but kids will be in their glory spending hours at the onsite pool and waterslides.

Just across Highway 97 at the Best Western Plus Kelowna Hotel & Suites, kids (who stay free if they’re under 17) will love playing in their outdoor courtyard, all-season indoor mineral pool and outdoor hot tubs. The adults in the group may opt for some added rest and relaxation with massage or facial at The Wellness Spa, located just off the lobby entrance.

Not wanting to exclude your four-legged family members, pets are also welcome at both properties and there are lots of great walking trails nearby for you to enjoy.


Adventure Awaits

A four-season destination, Kelowna has exceptional outdoor activities for everyone to enjoy.

In the winter, enjoy world-class skiing at nearby Big White Ski Resort or the seasonal outdoor skating rink at Stuart Park in the heart of downtown. Rentals are available for both so you can keep your packing light and get all you need onsite.

In the summer, get a scenic city view on one of our local trails, or explore Okanagan Lake by boat or board. Located at the renowned Eldorado Resort, the Eldorado Marina offers powerboat, wave runner, kayak and paddle board rentals so you can explore the lake your way. Wanting to stay on shore, they also offer cruiser and e-bike rentals or you can walk their picturesque boardwalk to nearby beaches. Inside tip, make sure you grab a bite from their Lakeside Dining Room to fuel your adventures.


When in Wine Country

Wicked Wine Tour-Winter Tour (2)

With more than 40 wineries in the area, Kelowna is known as one of Canada’s top wine country destinations. Take advantage by planning a day (or two) of wine-ing and dining on one of our 5 unique wine trails.

Want to leave the planning (and driving) to the professionals? Nick and the team at Wicked Tours can take care of all the details so you can just sip back, and relax (pun intended) on their full or half-day wine tours. If wine isn’t your beverage of choice, they also offer fun local Food Tours and Beer Tours.
