The Tourism Challenge is a Vancouver tourism industry tradition. It is our annual opportunity as tourism industry professionals to re-educate ourselves and enjoy the outstanding attractions and world class hotels that our region has to offer.
So that we are ready to welcome our guests and share our passion and knowledge about ALL that our city and region have to offer.
Fill in the inside front page of your PASSPORT before you arrive. Present your PASSPORT and PHOTO ID (only necessary for the Passport holder) to the ticket centre, server or host, and be sure to let reservations know you are booking a special Tourism Challenge room rate. You will receive FREE ADMISSION or EXCEPTIONAL RATES for two to any of our partner attractions or an EXCLUSIVE SPECIAL offer at our participating hotels.
Everyone who currently works or volunteers for one of the 300 tourism industry partners can participate in this program. Proof of employment will be requested before receiving a benefit.
Put a little effort in and the TOURISM CHALLENGE PRIVILEGE PASS is yours
