B.C. is set to make history. For the first time ever, the World Travel Awards (WTA) will be hosted in Canada.

Over 300 international delegates will be present at the North American Gala Ceremony in October 2020 as part of the World Travel Awards Grand Tour.
Founded in 1993, the awards acknowledges, rewards, and celebrates excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry.
The application to bring these awards to B.C was put together by the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association (TOTA), Predator Ridge Resort, and the City of Vernon earlier this year.
Host cities for the second and third years will be announced at a later date.
