ITAC is proud to be hosting the 8th International Indigenous Tourism Conference (IITC) in Syilx Territory at the Delta Hotels by Marriot Grand Okanagan Resort in Kelowna, British Columbia from November 12 to 14, 2019. The international event has been successfully hosted by ITAC and delivered through the partnership of various regional Indigenous tourism organizations for the past seven years, having previously been held in Quebec, Nova Scotia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia.

The 2018 IITC in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan exceeded expectations with sold-out success and brought together Indigenous tourism operators from across Canada and around the world for three days of sharing best practices and networking. Over 500 delegates participated in panel discussions, breakout sessions, keynote presentations and local cultural experiences.
