An intuitively compact city that offers numerous facilities and amazing experiences, larger urban centres are envious of Penticton and everything it has to offer, except for traffic jams and parking nightmares.

More than 80 wineries, 8 craft breweries, and 3 distilleries are nearby, paired with a vibrant cuisine culture that is fresh and innovative. It’s no wonder that chefs, winemakers, brewers, and distillers have been making their way to the South Okanagan to work with the bounty of ingredients they often find right outside their doors or at a nearby farm or seasonal market.

After a day of business, connection, and networking, the 5,000-seat South Okanagan Event Centre may have a concert or performance for your team to take in – maybe in a private suite? Or drop by a smaller music venue in the downtown entertainment district to hear a local performer or tap your toes to a touring band. On a break from a convention? Visit the Penticton Art Gallery for its latest exhibit, then take a serene walk around the Penticton Ikeda Japanese Garden. As your delegate head back, they will see public art along Okanagan Lake, or can make their way along Front, Main, and Martin streets to note many art galleries for shopping before heading home.

Penticton is a highly desirable location for special events and incentive travel, with a great menu for entertainment.
