PRINCE GEORGE- Prince George has been on full display this week between the BC Natural Resource Forum and the 2023 Nordiq Canada Selection Trials & Nordiq Cup.

“It’s so good to see people, so many people back in town making face-to-face connections,” said Mayor Simon Yu.

Between the two major events, the rough estimate of people visiting Prince George this week is around 2000 out-of-town visitors.

It’s not just folks from BC coming up north, Prince George has become a global landmark with teams from Australia, Poland and Czech Republic at the Ski Trails.

The CEO of Tourism Prince George Colin Carson, says it’s impressive that our community can host both of these events simultaneously.

“We’re not just talking sport or just talking conferences, but we’re able to showcase both in these amazing facilities,” said Carson.

Since the Pandemic, Prince George has hosted the Woman’s World Curling Championships and the BC Summer Games. Now, with the BC Natural Resource Forum and the 2023 Nordiq Canada Selection Trials & Nordiq Cup, more events like these are sure to come to the northern capital in the year to come.
