British Columbia Destination & Region Guide

Make your meeting or event into a special occasion by taking it international but keeping it in the Pacific Northwest. British Columbia has a variety of options whether you are looking for the big-city experience in Vancouver, mountain recreation or the unique attractions of Vancouver Island.

A vibrant city with stunning natural surroundings, Vancouver offers an unforgettable experience for any gathering. Sophisticated Victoria rests on the rocky southern end of Vancouver Island. The city’s British heritage is evident in its Victorian architecture, traditional afternoon teas, sculpted gardens, expansive parks and impressive meeting facilities.

The province’s premier mountain destination, Whistler, is ready and able to accommodate groups of all sizes. The stunning landscape and pedestrian- only village provide an inviting backdrop for conference, retreats, incentive trips and special events.

Kamloops is the hub of British Columbia’s interior. Easily accessible, this city has a wide variety of options for meetings and events, and the area around Kamloops is home to unique natural attractions and fun recreation opportunities. Kelowna, cradled in the sun-soaked valleys of southern British Columbia, invites planners to combine business and pleasure as they visit this energetic city surrounded by mountains, vineyards and orchards.

The cities of mainland British Columbia are easily accessible by air, rail or highway, while several air and ferry options serve Vancouver Island.
