In celebration of Earth Day, we are proud to announce that the Kelowna Visitor Centre has received Gold Certification from Sustainable Tourism. This certification comes on the heels of Tourism Kelowna becoming a Biosphere Committed Entity earlier this year .
For some time, Tourism Kelowna has had requests from visitors to allow them to book local experiences in our visitor centre, as well as online at tourismkelowna.com . The requests prompted us to think of ways we can help your business or organization to grow while making it easier for visitors to experience everything the Central Okanagan area offers.
As the official Destination Marketing Organization for the District of Lake Country, Tourism Kelowna is proud to market and promote the many tourism businesses in the district, which is a world-class travel destination. This year, Tourism Kelowna sponsored the Tourism Excellence Award at the 2018 Lake Country Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards, which took place on Friday, February 22, 2019, at The Four Points by Sheraton Kelowna Airport.
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.
