Tourism Kelowna’s Media Relations Program worked with host/producers Jim Gordon and Darren Parkman to bring The Travel Guys television shoot to Kelowna. Read on to find out how we went from pitch to actualizing the shoot, and check out the great coverage of Kelowna now that the episode has been airing on Shaw. A big thank you to The Travel Guys TV for featuring Kelowna on the show. Initial talks between Jim and me at the GoMedia Marketplace led to putting Kelowna on the shoot schedule, and reaching out to local partners interested in investing resources in participating on the shoot. Tourism Kelowna and local partners hosted The Travel Guys’ crew last August (2012), and we were blessed with three perfect days for the shoot.

The television show aired in the fall on Shaw, and ran several times throughout October and December, 2012. It continues to air on Shaw into the spring, and is expected to be picked up by other television markets as well. Thank you to partners: Budget Car & Truck Rental, Delta Grand Okanagan, Valhalla Helicopters, RauDZ Regional Table, Waterfront Restaurant, Bouchons Bistro, Gyro Beach Watersports, The Harvest Golf Club, Okanagan Rent-A-Boat.ca, and Summerhill Pyramid Winery for partnering with Tourism Kelowna on this great shoot.
