Tourism officials gather together

The Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association holds its annual general meeting Oct. 28

Tourism stakeholders from across the Thompson-Okanagan will gather in Kelowna next month to give a major boost to their $1.7 billion industry.

The Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association holds its annual general meeting Oct. 28, with Destination B.C. presenting its Winning Together Road Show.

“This summit’s theme, Exceeding Expectations, will build on the momentum of the tourism strategy and current growth in the development of visitor experiences, relationships with communities, and routes-and-corridors – all of which is creating a more vibrant industry with significant growth targeted to extend the travel season,” said Glenn Mandziuk, TOTA president.

Previous Summits have attracted close to 200 tourism leaders from communities throughout the Thompson-Okanagan region.

“The annual summit provides that face-to-face connectivity we need as an industry to create and develop long term relationships with each other and learn how to navigate the road ahead with this ever changing industry,” said Michael J. Ballingall, TOTA chairperson.

TOTA represents more than 3,800 tourism industry stakeholders across the Thompson-Okanagan region.
