Nestled in the southern interior of British Columbia, the Thompson Okanagan is blessed with natural wonders. It is a region rich in indigenous culture, sun-soaked valleys surrounded by sweeping grasslands and connected throughout by water. These lush valleys set the scene for a thriving culinary scene and world-class vineyards.

Graham Cooke, Founder, WTA, said: “We are deeply honoured to host our North America Gala Ceremony 2020 in the Thompson Okanagan. This delightful region of British Columbia is leading the way in sustainable tourism practice and serving as a benchmark of how to preserve Mother Nature for the benefit of future generations.”

He added: “The Thompson Okanagan is a region of overwhelming beauty that ranges from towering waterfalls and soaring mountains to verdant valleys and glacial lakes. I look forward to welcoming the most senior decision-makers of North America’s travel industry for what promises to be a most memorable ceremony in this phenomenal region.”

Glenn Mandziuk, President & CEO, Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association, recognises the impact an opportunity like this affords the region as a whole. “We are so honoured to welcome such a prestigious event to the Thompson Okanagan and look forward to hosting international tourism industry leaders in Vernon. This would not have been possible without the support of our stakeholder and community partners and it is a privilege to share our region with the world.”
