The success of any tourism destination rests heavily on the quality of the visitor experience. Today’s visitor services are about ensuring information is available when and where visitors need it.
There are more than 100 community-owned Visitor Centres throughout British Columbia that make up the Visitor Services Network Program. Last year, the community Visitor Centres served almost 2.9 million visitors at their physical location and around their community.
Customer service expectations are rapidly rising, and we need to keep pace with the convenience, speed, and channel availability expected by our visitors, and deliver it in an exemplary way.
Destination BC works with the entire tourism industry to expand the delivery of services. This includes creating more contemporary and innovative ways to connect with travellers online, and providing the same level of exceptional service that people experience in visitor centres.
There are four strategic themes which drive our 2018-2020 Visitor Experience Strategy:
