Penticton is an ideal destination for meetings and conferences, with more than 100,000 sq. ft. of combined meeting and exhibition space in the heart of British Columbia’s beautiful Okanagan Valley.

With a population of around 37,000 people, the natural landscape surrounding the city has fostered a cozy community feel with all the amenities of a larger metropolis.

Less than 7km of walkable and rideable space and trails separates the north and south ends of the city; navigating couldn’t be easier. Delegates will find themselves just steps away from world-class culinary and cultural experience as well as numerous outdoor activities.


A variety of meeting spaces offers options from the Okanagan’s only full-service convention centre.

With more than 900 hotel rooms and 470 motel rooms within walking distance – to intimate board rooms, some even located at local wineries. Imagine a strategic planning session overlooking a vineyard. We can help you plan a unique gathering that hits all the marks.

More than 2,100 hours of sunshine annually, with only 15 inches of rain, the Penticton area has a comfortable climate year-round.

Spring, fall and winter are great options for conferences as events, as delegates are still able to enjoy amazing experiences, while avoiding the extremely busy tourist season.
