We are excited to shine the spotlight on Linda Bolton, Tourism Kamloops’ Partner Program Sales Executive! Through her work, Linda makes sure we’re connecting with the right businesses, stakeholders, and advertisers to make our offerings a success – think the award-winning Loops Explorer Pass, our popular Bike Trail Map, and our beautifully designed Vacation Guide.
Prior to joining the Tourism Kamloops team in 2020, Linda worked with Kamloops This Week at Aberdeen Publishing for over 20 years in a variety of roles. From sales consultant to sales manager, and eventually publisher, Linda has a breadth of experience across the print media industry. When asked what her favourite part of her work was, Linda said “Each position I held offers a different look at the works of print media. The newspaper is a fast-paced work environment that requires the ability to make quick decisions and a willingness to take risks. Being a part of the community and watching the changes in Kamloops has been amazing.”
Supporting Tourism Kamloops’ sales efforts was a natural fit for Linda, as she has been passionate about supporting Kamloops’ visitor economy for decades. “Over the years, I’ve developed a special passion for the tourism and recreation industry,” she said. “It is such a strong part of what makes Kamloops great. I like to offer encouragement whenever possible and often volunteer assistance, always following through on my promises.”
When it comes to working with Tourism Kamloops, Linda’s favourite part is the people she gets to work with. “It’s such a positive team to work with, everyone is keen and caring,” said Linda. “Beyond our own team, I truly love the city and connecting with our businesses. I value connecting with stakeholders to understand their visions and goals and offering compassion solutions for their challenges.”
Having lived in Kamloops for over 30 years, Linda has the pulse on what makes Kamloops such an unexpected adventure. “I was a city walker, but have been surprised by Kamloops’ abundance of trails and paths,” said Linda. “None are the same, but every single one is beautiful in its own way.” You can find Linda around town volunteering at major national curling events, taking in a local sporting event, or enjoying an ice cream and a walk in Riverside Park.
Linda has many amazing Tourism Kamloops programs she’s offering sales for right now, including:
Loops Explorer Pass: A digital savings pass with a $50K ad budget driving visitors and locals to sign up for savings.
2024 Vacation Guide: Offered in both digital and print, this guide reaches 75k+ viewers and delivers big value.
