The Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association has landed another major World Tourism Award.
The award was presented over the weekend at a gala in Lisbon, Portugal.
The string of awards started when the region received the World Travel and Tourism Council’s Tourism for Tomorrow Destination Award. This was followed by the World Tourism Award as North America’s Responsible Tourism Destination, and this past Saturday the World Tourism Award’s Responsible Tourism Destination Worldwide for 2018.
“This is putting the Thompson Okanagan in the minds of industry partners and travellers worldwide and shows we are collectively heading in the right direction,” TOTA president Glenn Mandziuk said in a press release. “We are showing the next generation of guests that we are different, that we stand for something, and that we understand the value of the area we so proudly represent and do business in.”
“Our guests are changing, but we are poised to meet that change and to let them know that these are issues we have been actively looking at for many years, and more recently focused on everything we do and say.”
In the coming weeks, TOTA will be launching a new initiative with organizations like the Responsible Tourism Institute and bookdifferent.com to leverage the new award.
