Beyond Pender: What is Cultural Tourism in Chinatown?



April 10, 2019
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

April 10 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Vancouver’s Chinatown is one of the most unique neighbourhoods in the city and is rich in its cultural heritage. Join us for a conversation on how we can create deeper cultural experiences for visitors and tourists in Chinatown, as the City & Province commit to a UNESCO nomination.

We have invited representatives from Indigenous Tourism BC and Tourism Vancouver to share their experience and insights. We will explore examples of cultural tourism, why it is gaining momentum as a strategy for sustainable community building, and why it is relevant to Chinatown.

You will not want to miss this Beyond Pender session if you are:

  • a person who is passionate about Chinatown and its future
  • a student or professional studying or practicing tourism
  • a business/tourism operator seeking innovation and growth
  • a community organizer or planner looking for holistic strategies

Guest speakers:

Paula Amos – Director, Partnerships & Corporate Initiatives (Indigenous Tourism BC)
Ted Lee – Chief Financial Officer & Commercial Director (Tourism Vancouver)
Henry Tso – Chief Operating Officer & Chief Financial Officer (Indigenous Tourism BC)
