Kamloops was well represented at Go Media Marketplace this year as the event was hosted just south of us in Penticton. This international travel media marketplace is an annual event sanctioned by Destination Canada and supported by our provincial tourism partners at Destination BC and regional partners at Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association. During the three day conference, Monica Dickinson and Andrea Heath met face to face with journalists from key markets through 32 pre-scheduled appointments pitching unique Kamloops story ideas.
Tourism Kamloops also had the pleasure of joining forces with Tourism Sun Peaks to sponsor and host the luncheon on Wednesday afternoon. On behalf of our destinations, Kelly Funk, local tourism and commercial photographer delivered an inspiring 10 minute visual presentation revealing Kamloops and Sun Peaks to this engaged audience. We also brought a taste of Kamloops/Sun Peaks to the luncheon highlighting local salmon from our partners at Riverfresh Salmon, Sunmore Ginseng honey drizzled over the bannock and berry compote dessert all complimented by local wines provided by Harper’s Trail Winery and Monte Creek Estate Winery. Many thanks to all of our stakeholders that generously contributed to making our luncheon such as success!
