VANCOUVER—The Tourism Industry Association of BC regrets to confirm that, due to low industry participation and insufficient sponsor support, the BC Tourism & Hospitality Industry Awards program and gala evening are officially cancelled.
“We extend our apologies to all of you who have invested time and energy in coordinating and submitting your nominations. The decision to cancel the event is very disappointing for everyone,” TIABC chair Christine Willow said in a release.
Planning is still moving ahead for the BC Tourism & Hospitality Summit, which will take place Nov. 3-4 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
Summit registration will open early next week.
