Some of the Kelowna team

Tourism Kelowna and eight of our meeting partners hosted members of the Vancouver Board of Trade for an evening of wine paired bites at the Miele Centre in downtown Vancouver.  The event introduced the taste of meetings and events in Kelowna to a whole new group of Vancouver companies.  Chef Jesse Croy from Sunset Organic Bistro at Summerhill Pyramid Winery, Chef Brad Horen and Chef Marc Schoene from Smack DAB at Manteo Resort, and Chef Grant de Montreuil from The Cove Lakeside Resort prepared canapés paired with wines from Summerhill Pyramid Winery, Quails’ Gate Winery, and Mission Hill Family Estate.

The event sold out well in advance and attendees were engaged and interested to hear more of what Kelowna had to offer.  From an event standpoint this was very successful in creating awareness of Kelowna to a new market and we are busy following up, looking to create new business opportunities for our meeting partners.
