This year's conference was October 4th 2016 in Ucluelet.

Sidney by the Sea is delighted to host Tourism Vancouver Island’s 2017 Annual Conference and AGM. Nestled on the shores of the Salish Sea, Sidney abounds in natural beauty, small-town charm, and almost limitless opportunities for recreation and cultural exploration—to say nothing of great restaurants, cafés, health and wellness services, boutique shopping and VI’s only seaside distillery! As gateway to Vancouver Island, Sidney prides itself on its unique setting, quality offerings, and friendly residents and business owners. With its proximity to BC and Washington State ferries and Victoria International Airport, Sidney offers visitors a delightful introduction to the many charms of Vancouver Island. Sidney looks forward to welcoming delegates from Vancouver Island’s Tourism Industry and ensuring that each and every delegate has a memorable experience!
