The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce recently announced Tourism Kelowna's sponsorship of the newly created "Excellence in Tourism" award, which will be presented later this year at the Chamber's 2019 Business Excellence Awards. 

“We’re thrilled to be sponsoring this award at next November’s ceremonies hosted by the Chamber," said Tourism Kelowna President & CEO, Lisanne Ballantyne. "Given the impact that tourism has on our local economy, and the outright excellence of many of our attractions and venues, this award is bound to attract major attention from local tourism-related companies.”

Nominations for the "Excellence in Tourism" award, along with 11 other award categories, are now being accepted. Tourism businesses who have "consistently delivered a top quality product/service that has enhanced tourism/hospitality locally and provincially" are eligible to apply for the excellence award.

The deadline to submit a nomination is 4 p.m. on Friday, July 26.  Click here for more information on additional award categories, to view general criteria required for submissions, and to submit nominations.
