travel trade and media

travel trade

In partnership with Destination British Columbia, Thompson Okanagan Tourism works with Travel Trade to build destination awareness in our top markets. Our focus is to attract new business to the region and to increase overnight stays with existing key accounts. We target key accounts who bring tour groups and FIT travellers into our region. Ingrid Dilschneider, Director of Marketing, assists with research, travel planning, new product bulletins, sample itineraries, destination information, stakeholder contacts, and travel trade familiarization trips.

Are you a member of the Travel Trade and require additional information about the region, including signature experiences, new product, and itinerary ideas? Check out our Travel Trade Planner.
