Tourism Industry Conference
2016 TOURISM INDUSTRY CONFERENCE
The Tourism Industry Conference & 39th Annual General Meeting took place on October 4 & 5, 2016 at the Prestige Lakeside Resort in Nelson.
On the West Arm of Kootenay Lake resides Nelson, a mountain town with a big city buzz. Known for its welcoming personality and diversity of outdoor adventures, the city itself is full of trendy boutique shops with some 350 heritage buildings that flourish year-round. Nelson is a culturally diverse destination with eclectic fodder for foodies, art-goers, music lovers, history buffs and adventure seekers.
To showcase the food and arts experience, an extravaganza was planned for the evening of October 4 – A Pub and Art Walk around downtown which will include entertainment and dining at six different restaurants.
Extra time was spent exploring Nelson, before and after the Conference. Here’s some special offers which were offered to KRT Conference Delegates:
Gerick Cycle and Ski offered a discounted rate on the rental of their electric bikes. This was an excellent way to tour around the city and see the sights from the waterfront to the city’s upper heights. Bike rental for the day was offered at $25 (regular rate is $45).
Also, a ziplining adventure was offered with Kokanee Mountain Zipline (from Oct 3-7, mention KRT AGM) for the special price of $60 plus tax. The attraction features six ziplines; six unique experiences.
