PENTICTON - Journalists and media from all over the world will come to wine country next year as Penticton hosts the 2015 GoMedia Canada Marketplace.

GoMedia, part of the Canadian Tourism Commission, is the biggest annual consumer media show in the country. The events hosts industry partners from across Canada, the U.S. and 10 international markets.

"We are absolutely thrilled to have Penticton & Wine Country chosen as the host of Go Media in 2015," said Diana Stirling, Vice-Chair of Tourism Penticton Society. "We know that Penticton's world class beaches, amazing conference facilities and our position in the heart of Canada's Wine Country deserve the world stage. This event will not only place us there, but provide us the opportunity to show the world that we belong there!"

Past GoMedia shows have generated up to an estimated $34.5 million in advertising value across all markets.

"Each GoMedia location offers journalists and bloggers a different perspective of Canada and its experiences, helping them enrich their stories and inspire both their editors and then their readers," says Ernst Flach, CTC executive director, Global Communications. "Tourism Penticton will make wonderful hosts for this gathering of international media minds, providing a taste of Canadian outdoor adventure as well as showcasing BC's wines."

The event will be held at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre, Sept. 27, 2015 to Oct. 1, 2015. Attendees can participate in face-to-face meetings and networking opportunities, among others.
