InterVistas Consulting, on behalf of Tourism Kelowna, is currently collecting employment surveys for an economic impact study of the tourism sector. The result of this investigation will provide our industry with a detailed analysis of the scope of tourism in Kelowna and the surrounding areas.
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 .
