Tourism Kelowna, along with representatives from Destination British Columbia, the province's regional tourism entities, and large destinations, travelled to Calgary, Vancouver, and Seattle in mid-May to meet with travel media and share stories for consideration in upcoming travel features.

The reception and networking events presented opportunities to connect or reconnect with travel writers, influencers, and content developers in three of Kelowna's key travel markets to share information on what's new in our destination and convince travel writers to learn more or include future articles on the destination. 

The events featured a selection of BC wines and BC-themed foods and included a preview of the IMAX Film Great Bear Rainforest. All of the media participants left with information about what's new and noteworthy in Kelowna. 

If you have any questions about our travel media program or have new information to share about your business you'd like travel media to know about, please contact Chris Shauf at or call (250) 861-1515 ext 203.
