2016 Fall Familiarization Tour Recaps
Throughout the year Tourism Kamloops partners with a variety of organizations and businesses to host Travel Trade guests and Media. Our goals are to gain exposure and encourage increased length of stay in Kamloops.
2016 FALL MEDIA FAMILIARIZATION TRIPS
September 27 – Rocky Mountaineer Media Fam
A group of 14 media experiencing a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer stopped in Kamloops for a visit. Alongside our partners we hosted them for wine and food parings for an evening. They were visiting from Rocky’s top markets including Canada, USA, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom all writing in a variety of publications. Here is one article that has already been published as a result of the event.
Special thanks to our partners:
