The Facts

Don’t know much about our weird and wonderful city? There are so many things about Kamloops people don't know, like great attractions, interesting and unique venues and the rugged desert landscape that surrounds us. We have put together some facts that prove we’re a great location for your next meeting.  

Ideal Size

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.
