Tourism Richmond is launching an ambassador program for locals called “Pacific. Authentic. Locals.” The program will allow residents to showcase the city to visitors from a unique perspective.
“Visitors are looking for an authentic experience. They want to do as the locals do,” says Tourism Richmond CEO Nancy Small. “Now, locals have a chance to share their love of Richmond with future visitors. We’re looking for residents to give a warm Richmond welcome to visitors when travel restrictions are lifted.
The program launches with two knowledge tests that cover details on Richmond and the value of tourism to the city. It will expand to include more activities to engage residents.
Participants will receive an official ambassador certificate for each test they pass and those who pass both tests will be entered into a draw to win the ultimate Richmond Ambassador Prize consisting of:
- A Pacific. Authentic. Richmond BC swag bag
- Two adult tickets for a whale watching tour with Vancouver Whale Watch
- Entry into the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site
- A $50 gift card for McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport
