August was an exciting month for Kelowna media placements. Huge reach was achieved in the US via the New York Times in print and online. Tourism Kelowna, BC Wine Institute, and the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association have all had a hand in working with journalist Elaine Gulsac through media trips, conferences, and email correspondence resulting in the Okanagan and Kelowna properties being featured in the well-respected publication.
Kelowna and the rest of the Okanagan have also been included in an article in the UK's The Telegraph, our newest breweries have been given some love in local BC outlets, and both fall and summer travel have been featured on national websites. See more of the highlights below:
