Midnight Musings from our CEO
Last Wednesday the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, the Honorable Lisa Beare and Deputy Minister Shauna Brouwer joined us in Kelowna for an insightful industry round table.
With representation from tourism stakeholders in the immediate area as well as all of the regions various tourism sectors, it was an opportunity to share the concerns, challenges, and visions for the future.
In her own words, the Minister was here to listen and to gain a deeper understanding of the important issues that need to be resolved to ensure we continue to grow and enhance the tourism industry.
It is very clear that Minister Beare takes tourism seriously and understands the tremendous importance it plays in this region and the province. Tourism is and can be a strong economic driver for communities large and small and a resource to be appreciated, nurtured and protected.
Our thanks to all of those that took time to join in this conversation and to Minister Beare and Deputy Minister Brouwer for coming to the region.
