On November 18, YCB hosted its 17th Annual Red Carpet Tour featuring services and products our YCB Members provide to Events, Conferences, and Meetings across the Yukon.
This year’s Red Carpet Tour saw a total of 5 participants from various government departments and the private sector.
Thanks to the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre for kicking off the event and for the Best Western Gold Rush Inn for catering the breakfast (all individually wrapped).
Our ground transportation sponsor, Standard Bus, drove the group around all day to properties for site visits which included Mt Mac Curling Club, Skky Hotel & Tony’s Pasta & Seafood Restaurant, Well Bread Culinary Centre, Edgewater Hotel, and the newly opened Raven Inn.
After an educational tour at the MacBride Museum, we sat down to a delicious lunch catered by The Claim Cafe, while Carmen Magro from Klondike Travel and Jeff Hamm from Upstream Events passed along information about the details of hybrid/virtual events as well as some changes and reminders for safe and efficient travel.
In the afternoon, we visited the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, Smoke and Sow’s new brick and mortar restaurant, and Polarity Brewing. We learned about the various pre and post meeting activities there are to do in and around Whitehorse, new culinary experiences and some new venue options.
We wrapped up the day with bites catered by Wandering Bison and beverages at the soon-to-be-opened Gather Cafe after a ‘hot’ experience with Lumel Studio and YCB drew names for door prizes.
Thank you to all of our members, partners and sponsors for helping make this day possible – we couldn’t do it without you!
A big thank you to our sponsors and partners:
