The Kelowna Curling Club will be hosting the  Winn Rentals World Mixed Curling Championships , taking place from October 13 to October 20, 2018. This is the fourth edition of this event, but it is the first time the event has been held outside of Europe. With 140 of the world's best curlers representing 35 international teams competing, the event will boost the city's hotel occupancy by 1,500 total rooms .
Tourism Kelowna is pleased to share that Melissa McCluskey has recently started a new role within our organization. Putting her knowledge of Kelowna and area's accommodations, attractions, conferences, and events to use, Melissa will use Tourism Kelowna's social media and communication  channels to inspire travellers to choose Kelowna as a must-visit destination and provide information to our stakeholders, industry, and community.
Television personalities, elite athletes, travel and adventure photographers - even four-legged friends: travel influencers come in various forms but all have the same opportunity to help drive visitation to a destination. Over the past few months, Tourism Kelowna has had great success working with influencers to showcase our destination and its many attractions.
