This year’s Tourism Vancouver Christmas Luncheon had record attendance and a brand-new energy supplied by all the members, staff and sponsors of the annual holiday event. To view the colourful display of camaraderie and festivity, we invite you to glance through the vibrant photos in our Christmas Luncheon Photo Gallery:

A special thank you to Bold Event Creative and Vision Event Photography for teaming up to create our portrait studio. And of course, a warm thank you to Santa and Mrs. Claus for making another wonderful guest appearance.

It was wonderful to see many of our guests partake in the spirit of the season, dressed in their holiday best to jingle the day away.  We are pleased to announce that the “Most Festively Dressed Individual” prize went to Nancy Stibbard from the Capilano Group. The “Most Festively Dressed Table” was awarded to those mischievous little elves from EasyPark!

During the event, we raised a total of $4,000 for the BC Hospitality Foundation and are thankful to those who purchased 50/50 tickets and raffle tickets.

We’d like to thank the Nearly Neil and the Solitary Band for their lively musical contributions to the afternoon. It was wonderful to see a few of our members get out on the dancefloor at the end of the afternoon.

Our event was a success due to the generous contributions from our major sponsors for their collaborative vision and dedication to make our event spectacular: Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, PSAV, Vision Event Photography, Bold Event Creative, Foster Walker Gifts, and Gardenworks. And for the more than 90 members who kindly donated prizes for the event, we appreciate your spirit of giving.

From the Membership team, and the entire Tourism Vancouver staff, Happy Holidays!
