Surrounded by mountains and vineyards, orchards and farms, Kelowna lies in the heart of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, and is the largest city on Okanagan Lake.
Kelowna International Airport (YLW) is one of Canada’s busiest airports, with 60+ daily non-stop flights from across Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. Only a one hour flight from Calgary, Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle, and a four hour flight from Toronto.

Accommodation

Meetings facilities in Kelowna include world-class hotels in the heart of downtown as well as properties dotted throughout the city, from resort suites to standard accommodations, condos to villas, more than 4,500 rooms in all, helping planners meet specific goals in memorable settings.
And since nearly all are 20 minutes or less from the airport and offer free shuttles, planners can choose urban flair or a site beyond city center without sacrificing delegate convenience.

Dining & Entertainment

Kelowna offers over 30 wineries within a 20 minute drive, featuring top-quality wines that regularly win national and international awards. And with farm-fresh food, nationally recognized chefs, and a thriving craft-brew and cider scene, we make sure your guests leave the table happy every time.
