BC Tourism Resiliency Network website.
Vancouver, Coast & Mountains (VCM) regional representatives work collaboratively with partners throughout the region, to connect industry to various programs available through Destination BC.
Destination BC also provides professional development and networking opportunities throughout the year for VCM partners via community and industry forums, sector marketing meetings, workshops, and stakeholder outreach.
Held annually, these two forums provide an opportunity for VCM partners and Destination BC to network, share and learn.
The Community Forum is a full day event held in late spring, specifically for community tourism organizations, and allows Destination BC to provide an update on many of its programs areas, activities and opportunities for VCM tourism partners. Community partners are also given the opportunity to share their priorities and activities for the upcoming year.
2020 and 2021 have been challenging years for our industry, especially in the Vancouver, Coast & Mountains (VCM) tourism region, as we rely heavily on international visitation. The VCM team, along with many partners, have been working hard to build back better. Together, tremendous accomplishments have been made over the past 16 months, some of which are highlighted in the graphic. All of these combined efforts are assisting us better to collectively move towards recovery. Learn more about Destination Development in Vancouver, Coast & Mountains.

Our VCM representative is always looking for fresh story ideas and products to share with journalists, tour operators, and at trade shows. Our VCM representative not only plans and executes tactical strategies for North America and key international markets, but also identifies market trends and opportunities for VCM partners.
