World Travel Awards has revealed it will host its North America Gala Ceremony 2020 in the Thompson Okanagan, British Columbia.
The leading travel industry figureheads and decision-makers from across North America will attend what will mark World Travel Awards first ceremony in Canada.

“I look forward to welcoming the most senior decision-makers of North Americas travel industry for what promises to be a most memorable ceremony in this phenomenal region.”
