Thompson Okanagan Hotel, Motel & Inn Industry Research Reports

Since the formulation of the previous Penticton Destination Marketing Strategy in 2010, Tourism Penticton and the Penticton Hospitality Association (PHA) have worked independently to promote our region and during that time tourism has experienced a steady growth.

Tourism is a major economic generator for the City of Kelowna and its surrounding municipalities and region. Tourism contributes directly to employment and economic growth in the region through the ongoing operations and activities of different firms that serve tourists.

The Destination Osoyoos Business Plan has been developed through a combination of review of the previous five-year business plan which was developed in 2017 for our 2018 MRDT renewal.
