New Nelson community calendar launched

Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism is bringing businesses and citizens together to create a shared community calendar.

An example of the new Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism calendar.

Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism is bringing businesses and citizens of the region together to create a needed and exciting shared community calendar. This calendar will be for anyone looking to find all that is happening in our region, everyday: nelsonkootenaylake.com/calendar

Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism started communicating this initiative with local organizations and businesses at the end of April and already has over 50 new connected calendar partners and hundreds of posted events.

Each partner owns their own calendar which automatically publishes their events to this new central community hub. The goal is to have all the events in the region populating the calendar, providing an effective means for businesses and organizations to share their events with locals and tourists alike.

This community calendar’s success requires not only connected partners, but locals who use it. Through location and category filters the calendar makes it easy to find exactly what you are looking for, whether you live here or are just visiting.

For more information on how to get your own calendar and post your events, visit nelsonkootenaylake.com/calendar/info

Two years ago Nelson Kootenay Lake Tourism asked its stakeholders if they were interested in developing a community calendar (Nelson to Meadow Creek). With 79 per cent supporting this idea they are now bringing this project to life, uniting and promoting music, sales, festivals, workshops, markets and more.

Through the support of Columbia Basin Trust and Destination BC they are able to help you add a calendar to your website, populate it with events, or simply share the calendar with potential clients by directly linking to it.

During this campaign, until the end of May, the first 50 businesses that sign-up for their own networking calendar will be recognized in the local media and receive the calendar free this year. To enter, email info@nelsonkootenaylake.com to receive the Community Calendar logo, and then send the URL of where the logo link is located on your website.
