The 1UP Digital Marketing team was able to help Tourism Kamloops stay top of mind as a safe travel destination during a rapidly evolving global pandemic. With hands-on support, Tourism Kamloops saw an increase in overall awareness and total users to our website, and in turn, traffic direct to our partners’ websites. Tourism Kamloops is confident that Kamloops will be a destination of choice as travel resumes thanks to the support from the 1UP team.
