Kelowna Kicks-off Incentive Works in Toronto!

Incentive Works is Canada’s largest meetings industry trade show, and Tourism Kelowna will be in attendance with booth space when the show takes place in Toronto next week. Looking to capitalize on this networking opportunity and make next week’s booth as productive and successful as possible, Tourism Kelowna hosted a wine reception downtown Toronto yesterday and invited meeting planners to kick-off the week with a taste of Kelowna!  Twenty-three planners gathered at Crush Wine Bar’s Okanagan Room for an evening reception with Mission Hill wine accompanied by fresh local food and the chance to mix and mingle with fellow planners and Kelowna host, Pat Gappmayr.   We will have the chance to say hello once again, when they stop by the Kelowna booth at Incentive Works next week.
