Why Kamloops

In Kamloops, everyone gets to play like a local. Here, spontaneity reigns, every street and trail are yours to explore, and wrong turns often lead to the greatest discoveries. Kamloops is the place where real places and rough edges are embraced. So if you're looking for polish and flash, you're in the wrong valley. Whether you want to test the limits of your mountain bike alongside rustic hoodoos, birdie (or bogey) your way across award-winning courses, or hike and taste wine at new heights, Kamloops has what you crave. So come as you are, play in our weird and awesome backyard, and let curiosity be your compass.


The Facts

At just under 100,000 people, some say Kamloops is the perfect sized city.  We’re small enough to allow attendees to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city and focus on the task at hand, but still large enough to have all the big city amenities meeting planners are looking for. Meeting venuesmarketing assistance, and an extensive list of service providers are ready and waiting for you.

Our close-knit community is so proud of the Arts and Culture scene that has transpired in the last 20 years, and the fantastic outdoor adventure we have right in town. These activities will provide your attendees with fun, quirky, outdoorsy team building and social activities. 

In most cases, you can get anywhere in the city in under 15 minutes.
