bbyEquip rooms for horses, BC hotel group says, and lower the stress of separation

VICTORIA, BC – Accent Inns is once again at the forefront of innovation in the highly-competitive world of hospitality, with the addition of one more offering to their already-specialized services: equi-accommodation, aka the provision of rooms for people and horses, together. For many years, the BC-based, family-owned hotel group catered to guests travelling with their pets, their bicycles and motorcycles. Now, horses – whether for show, racing, riding or just companionship – will be shown the same outstanding service that travellers have come to count on at Accent Inns since 1986. (more…)

Okanagan Symphony Orchestra is Movin On Up

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014
Knowles House

Knowles House

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra  is in motion, the Administration that is. On February 1 we will move in to our new offices at Knowles House, 865 Bernard Ave., Kelowna.
We love the house and the location, right next to a park, beautifully manicured by the City of Kelowna, where we can envision summer concerts in our more freewheeling moments.

Everything’s on the ground floor and is totally accessible, which gives us the opportunity to bring our ticketing in house, with our own space where our patrons can pick up tickets, ask questions and get to know us a bit better. (more…)
