During OpenStack 2018, attendees were surprised and delighted with customized gifts as part of their welcome to Vancouver. During the conference, Tourism Vancouver monitored conversations on social media and looked for opportunities to make these global visitors feel at home.
Here are a few of their reactions:
What a #birthday! Such a lovely, thoughtful touch from @MeetWhistler @MeetVancouver @Westin_Whistler, come back from zip lining with @SuperflyZipline to our room to find a card and some gifts! #Canada is awesome! #TAGWhistler #OnlyinWhistler pic.twitter.com/eWTg1I8QCU— Richard Ripley (@RichardWRipley) May 26, 2018
Had a wonderful few hours cycling around the seawall and enjoying some of the beautiful scenery that Vancouver has to offer. Thanks again to @MeetVancouver for their hospitality! Hope to come back again! #VeryVancouver pic.twitter.com/AyIscI0yUt— Matthew Johns (@mattjohns1) May 25, 2018
I have seen Flavortown and it is beautiful. Here’s just a sample of the phenomenal food we had last night at @nightingalerest. The prosciutto in particular changed my perception of how good prosciutto could even taste. Thank you to our fabulous waiter George, and to @meetvancouver for giving us the opportunity to experience food heaven. I’ll most definitely be back 🦉🥩🍁 — #nightingale #vancouver #bc #britishcolumbia #canada #food #dinner #restaurant #prosciutto #meatballs #travel #brianjdtravels #work #thecube #openstacksummit
