International group of buyers tours Kamloops and Sun Peaks post Canada's West Marketplace.
A group of 7 delegates attending Canada’s West Marketplace took the opportunity while in the Thompson Okanagan region to participate in a familiarization (fam) tour of Kamloops and Sun Peaks.
Representing the China, Japan, Korean, India and UK markets, these delegates spent 4 days in the region to experience a sample of activities, restaurants and accommodations. As part of the Destination BC allotment of destination fams offered in conjunction with Canada’s West Marketplace, TOTA, in partnership with Tourism Kamloops and Tourism Sun Peaks provided a look at what there is to see and do in the Thompson region.
With hosting support provided by stakeholders in the two regions, the fam participants spent some quality time ranging from experiencing Canadian and First Nations’ heritage to viewing grizzly bears to snowshoeing under bluebird skies.
