The Buzz: What People Are Saying

“Every visitor’s experience begins with their interactions with the tourism professionals in our city – front desk staff at hotels, servers in restaurants, volunteers, guides, drivers—the touch points are nearly endless. We know when our visitors leave with great stories of thoughtful and enthusiastic encounters, they tell their family, friends and colleagues about their experience. These great experiences are everything to us at Destination Vancouver. We couldn’t promote this city successfully without the positive feedback that the Vancouver Tourism Awards recognize.”

- Royce Chwin, President & CEO, Destination Vancouver

The Vancouver Tourism Awards has recognized those on the front lines of Vancouver’s tourism and hospitality industry for some three decades. In fact, the annual awards breakfast is one of our sector's best events each year. And while visitors from all over the world come to the Vancouver region for its spectacular scenery, attractions, restaurants, shopping, activities, accommodation, and other amenities, it is the outstanding service by tourism professionals that leave the biggest impression and encourage visitors to return again and again. TIABC salutes the Vancouver Tourism Awards organization for its ongoing efforts to recognize the dedicated people that make our industry what it is today.
