Tourism Kelowna and Partners exhibit at the Travel Trade Show in Calgary.

Tourism Kelowna recently attended our final two Meeting & Incentive Travel trade shows of the year.  The Travel Trade (formerly Howard Silver) Calgary Show took place in downtown Calgary and saw 96 meeting planners stop by to chat with our partners and take away a freshly grown Kelowna logoed apple from the East Kelowna Cider Company.   Tourism Kelowna’s Nicolle Gomez de Sousa and Jennifer Horsnell were joined by representatives from the Hotel Eldorado, Holiday Inn Express,  Mission Hill Family Estate, Manteo Resort Waterfront Hotel & Villas and the Coast Capri Hotel.

Pat Gappmayr recently attend the Canadian Society of Association Executives National Showcase in Winnipeg, MB.  This is the annual conference for CSAE and we saw 31 association meeting planners stop by and chat with our team.  Pat was joined by Lake Okanagan Resort and the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort & Conference Centre at the booth.
