It’s safe to say that 2017 has been a challenging year for our destination. What’s important to note is that throughout the weather-related challenges, local businesses have remained open and continued to provide great experiences for visitors from far and wide. Tourism Kelowna continued to market our destination throughout the summer, and we have extended paid marketing tactics into the autumn.
Steve Small joined Tourism Kelowna as our Digital Marketing Co-ordinator on May 1, 2017. Some of you will already know and recognize Steve as he has been with our team as a Visitor Sales and Services Counsellor since 2015. His experience and training made him a super candidate for this key role on our marketing and communications team.

Tourism Kelowna is hosting its second annual Tourism Industry Showcase event on Wednesday April 26 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
What is this event? This is an opportunity for Tourism Kelowna Stakeholders to get together and learn about each other in preparation for our busy spring, summer, and fall seasons. Think of it like a combination of a familiarization tour, networking, and speed dating.
There are three opportunities for Tourism Kelowna Stakeholder businesses to participate in this event:
Send your frontline and customer service staff for free! They will have the opportunity to chat with many of Kelowna’s tourism businesses by browsing through all of the booths in the showcase. This will allow them to learn about these businesses and make better recommendations to visitors during our busy Spring, Summer, and Fall season.
Purchase a Showcase booth and show off your activity, attraction, food & drink, farm, or tour business. There is an early bird rate of $75 if you purchase before April 20!
Attend one of three training opportunities that are available to you and your staff:
How to utilize Tourism Kelowna’s Services and Guides
Using Social Media to Serve Visitors and Increase Visitors
Learn How to Monitor Your Tourism Kelowna Web Traffic and Listings
