The Annual Airport’s Workshop kicked off today in Nanaimo, B.C. Over 100 delegates from across B.C. have made their way into beautiful Nanaimo for the three day conference.

Today, April 25, was day one and started with a golf tournament hosted by the Nanaimo Airport at the Cottonwood Golf Course. Over 30 delegates came out to show their skills on the course and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine while hearing planes take off from Nanaimo Airport.
