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.
