As Tourism Kelowna’s Business Development Consultant in Toronto, I attended RendezVous Canada this past week. This four day marketplace welcomed 1,500 travel professionals from the group tour market. There I joined a delegation from the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association, and for the first time we had team jackets to ensure we would be recognizable wherever we went.
I have also been busy selling Kelowna as a meeting destination. Last week I attended the Canadian Hotel Sales & Marketing trade show where I was able to connect with 48 planners from the Toronto area. As well, last Wednesday the Trillium Chapter of the Canadian Society of Association Executives hosted a Euchre evening to in support of Princess Margaret Hospital. I attended the event, (learned how to play the game of Euchre) and had a great time networking with everyone.
