Invite The World to Vancouver (and win an Annual Family Pass to @VanLookout)
As you know, my Mom comes every year (usually every summer) to visit me, but so far, none of my friends (with the exception of CB, who used to live here) has ever come to visit me, and that’s kind of sad, as I would love to bring them here (or you know, my brother and his wife and his daughters, for example). So, when I found out about Invite The World (To Vancouver) I found it an amazing idea. I travel a lot OUTSIDE of Vancouver, so it’s kind of neat to have a contest where you invite the world to come to you.
These are a couple of points that the partners in this initiative shared with me:
- We want people to invite their friends and family to come visit Vancouver
- You can send free physical and digital postcards (we are paying the postage)
- There are weekly prizes and a grand prize for sending postcards
- The grand prize is a trip for 4 friends or family to come visit the winner (flights, accommodation, and spending money)
To celebrate the launch of Invite The World, the partners have given me an Annual Family Pass to the Vancouver Lookout at Harbour Centre (Value $89) to give away to one lucky reader. The Annual Family Pass allows unlimited access to the Vancouver Lookout for two adults and two children (ages 5 to 12), for one year from the date of purchase.
You may have checked out some of my photos when I first wrote about the Vancouver Lookout:
To enter my giveaway, all you need to tell me is what would be the very first thing you’d show your invited guests when they arrive to Vancouver. Without any doubt, the very first thing I’ve shown my guests right after I pick them up at the airport has been Gastown. I’m a shopaholic. Hey, at least I am honest about it! I love shopping in the Gastown district and it makes my heart melt when I find something hummingbird-themed (don’t ask how much money I have spent on hummingbird paraphernalia – trust me, you don’t want to know!)
I will count a comment as a first entry, and an additional entry if you post the following on Twitter:
Suggested a Vancouver attraction on @hummingbird604 http://is.gd/8fZngQ to enter to win 1 Annual Pass @VanLookout via #InviteTheWorld
I think this idea of Invite The World is brilliant and I look forward to hearing what people think should be the first and foremost Vancouver attraction that folks from out of town should check out. Also, if you are interested in sharing more content on what your guests might enjoy on a trip from Vancouver to other destinations, check my Travel tag.
I will draw a winner on November 8th at 2pm.
