Why Kamloops

We understand that the success of an event goes beyond having great facilities.  Having excellent pre and post activities, a convenient and easily accessible location, great after hours things to do, as well as planning and hosting support go a long way towards creating a successful event. Kamloops provides all these and more!

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.
