The 2019 Central Okanagan Tourism Industry Showcase is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5, 2019, from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tourism Kelowna has once again partnered with the District of Lake Country, City of West Kelowna, and Destination Peachland to bring together the entire Central Okanagan tourism and hospitality industry.

Tourism Industry Showcase

New to the event this year is an additional partnership with go2HR to add a hiring fair component, which also opens the showcase to the public. This combined event will allow both current and prospective staff from the tourism and hospitality industry to learn more about the businesses and offerings available here in the Central Okanagan, as well as provide networking and career opportunities, all under one roof.

In addition to the showcase and hiring fair, two sessions will be taking place:
