VITE IS BACK, BIGGER AND BETTER FOR 2013! THIS YEAR TRIPLE THE FLOOR SPACE, MORE THAN DOUBLE THE CAPACITY AND OF COURSE, MORE TEQUILA BRANDS!
The Second Annual Vancouver International Tequila Expo (VITE) is Western Canada’s largest festival dedicated to Mexico’s number one export spirit. The festival aims to increase the presence of tequila in Western Canada. British Columbia tequila sales in 2012 reached $24 million and are growing every year, especially in the high-end premium category. In fact, since the inaugural 2012 event, BC tequila sales have increased more than 9%. This year’s VITE, with the help of the Consulate General of Mexico, ProMexico, Mexico Tourism Board and the BC Hospitality Foundation as our Charity Partner, will fuel that growth even further. The Main Event is a public Grand Tasting Hall (1500 tickets available) with an afternoon trade component to ensure maximum exposure to tequila products and a large customer base. During Vancouver Agave Week (May 20-24), you can attend tequila seminars, master classes, and pairing dinners at venues around Vancouver to further promote tequila and other agave spirits.
VITE 2013 will be held this Friday, May 24, 2013. The date places the Expo well after the Vancouver International Wine Festival and just in time for spring and summer when tequila sales increase. This timing will allow tequila brands and sponsors to place themselves before a large core of tequila aficionados, cocktail imbibers, and high-end spirits consumers. The afternoon trade tasting event will also draw buyers from across the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island. Expo is on Friday, May 24, 2013 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. TICKETS MUST BE BOUGHT ONLINE NO LATER THEN 4PM THIS FRIDAY!!! YOU CANNOT BUY TICKETS AT THE VENUE !!! Limited number of tickets available – no entry after 5:15pm. Please email email@example.com with any questions.

OWL HAS RESCUED ITS FIRST BABY OF 2013!
The OWL Facility specializes in raptors. Birds of prey patients at OWL number over four hundred each year and as OWL’s facilities have expanded, so has the intake. Primary care for injured birds, ie. injections, tube feeding, and initial treatment of broken bones to stabilize, is administered by Staff and volunteers trained through seminars given by veterinarians from the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council. Veterinary care, ie. surgery involving the pinning of fractures, removal of bullets, etc. is thankfully donated by Huff Animal Hospital, Richmond Animal Hospital, and Tsawwassen Animal Hospital. OWL pays only for medications. OWL attempts to find breeding programs for the non-releasable birds of prey so their young can be released to the wild.
