Ignite Destination Supplement | Ignitemag.ca | 61 The Okanagan region is a special place in a province that is known for superlative vistas, a tem- perate climate and year-round activities for groups. The Okanagan Valley is located in the interior of BC, nestled in a valley following a finger trail of five lakes. From Vernon in the north, to Kelowna, Pen- ticton and then Osoyoos to the south, this string of cities each has its own special attractions and cachet for groups and incentives. Planners may be surprised to discover how easily accessible the valley is. The Kelowna Interna- tional Airport serves over 1.6 million passengers annually and offers 64 daily non-stop commercial flights with Air Canada, WestJet, Alaska Airlines, Central Mountain Air, Air North and Pacific Coastal Jennifer Horsnell Director of Sales T: 250.861.1515 ext. 205 E: Jennifer@tourismkelowna.com tourismkelowna.com Ange Chew Tourism Manager City of Vernon T: 250.550.3649 E: achew@vernon.ca tourismvernon.com Lisa Kane Marking & Media Coordinator Tourism Penticton T: 250.276.2167 E: sales@tourismpenticton.com visitpenticton.com Brianne Hearle Director of Marketing T: 250.495.5070 ext. 201 E: bhearle@destinationosoyoos.com destinationosoyoos.com Airlines. These airlines connect to Western and international hubs such as Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Whitehorse and Seattle, with regional service to Victoria, Prince George, Edmonton and Fort McMurray. The Kelowna Airport is the airline transportation hub for the cities in the Okanagan. Groups coming to the valley have plenty of choices in terms of meeting and event space, accommodations and group activities in all four seasons—from winery and spirit tours, to golf tournaments, hiking trails, water sports to snow- boarding or skiing. The majestic beauty of the mountains, lakes, bountiful farmland and vineyards creates a visual panorama that makes the Okanagan truly a piece of paradise. COVER PHOTO CREDIT: TOURISM KELOWNA
