Support and amplify local events, sports and businesses 

A community grows and prospers when it comes together. Sponsoring local events and sports tournaments provide spaces for residents to meet, share ideas, and support local businesses. A major part of our initiative is in supporting local events, sports leagues, and tournaments to encourage these venues for interaction and community building.

Partner to build a stronger, sustainable community as a whole

Strong, sustainable communities create a sense of belonging and connection for residents. By sponsoring and supporting events that foster community building, Discover West Tourism works towards creating opportunities for positive social engagement.
