Kootenay Rockies Tourism has closed the books on another very successful AGM and Industry Conference!

The conference this year was held in Cranbrook and we want to extend a huge thanks to Cranbrook Tourism, the Prestige Rocky Mountain Resort, the Heid Out restaurant, and the Cranbrook History Centre.

We wish to acknowledge, with a tremendous thanks, all the sponsors and auction donators for this year’s conference. Without you, the conference would not be as affordable as it is for our delegates to attend.

Over the course of two days, the 130 delegates heard many inspirational and informative sessions on a variety of industry topics, including cannabis in the workplace, Google search strategy, regional destination development and annual highlights from both Destination BC and Kootenay Rockies Tourism.

The evening dinner was held at the Heid Out and the reception at the Royal Alexandra Hall in the Cranbrook History Centre. Delegates enjoyed dancing by the Ktunaxa Youth Dancers and the Sookenai singers/drummers as well as a historical oration delivered by Bonnie Harvey.

Thanks to Keith Powell of Koocanusa Publications for being the MC for the evening festivities.
