Hosted by the Sun Peaks Grand Hotel, the event begins with an opening reception on Tuesday night with special guest, Senator Nancy Greene Raine. Following TIABC’s AGM after breakfast on Wednesday morning, delegates will then attend a joint Town Hall hosted by TIABC and our national counterparts at TIAC, with participation from Destination Canada and Destination British Columbia.
After a special lunch presentation (invitation has been extended to federal Tourism Minister Hon. Bardish Chagger), delegates will join government representatives (MLAs, MPs, ministry staff) for a first-ever multi-sector roundtable discussion that will identify various tourism issues/initiatives and the progress being made on each. This lively session will also elicit response and input from DMOs, operators and government.
British Columbia’s Minister of Jobs, Tourism, Skills and Labour, the Honourable Shirley Bond has been invited to be the keynote speaker at the evening dinner hosted by Sun Peaks Grand Hotel, Tourism Sun Peaks and partners.
Thursday morning’s concurrent workshops for businesses, sectors and DMOs include sessions on Succession Planning, Government Priorities in Advance of Election 2017, and Film Tourism culminating with an entertaining and inspirational lunch. Delegates are free to participate in several post-event activities being coordinated by Tourism Sun Peaks, Tourism Kamloops and other partners.
Sun Peaks Grand Hotel will extend the conference room rate to delegates who choose to spend the weekend at Sun Peaks.
