A note to Canadian conference planners and association executives…
We know you’re busy and aren’t sure about travelling just yet. We definitely understand that you don’t have the time or desire to go on 6 different FAM trips. We also know you’re being asked to figure out future conference locations now that COVID is hopefully in our rearview mirror.
Sadly, this past couple of years has resulted in some significant turnover in our industry, contact people have changed, and it’s not easy to figure out who to call with RFPs and questions about destinations.
Destination Direct Canada is an opportunity to meet with most DMOs across Canada (30 are registered to attend, from coast, to coast, to coast) over two days without the hustle and bustle of a crowded tradeshow floor. Learn about funding opportunities and discover what DMOs can do to help your organization sort out your future rotation. There has truly never been a better time to develop new relationships with the folks whose job it is to help you.
Destination Direct Canada is a fully subsidized event – all travel, accommodation, education and meals are fully covered by participating DMOs – there is NO COST for qualified association executives or conference planners to participate. In exchange, you commit to 5 hours over two days of one-on-one appointments (15 minutes with up to 20 different DMOs) and you join us for some amazingly fun social events. You also gain a ton of information about what DMOs are doing to win back business in their cities, what they can do to help you with all your events (large and small) and perhaps most importantly – it’s an amazing opportunity to get you back into the work/socializing vibe in a really non-intimidating, non-crowded way (one on one appointments are the way of the future)!
