April 12 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am EDT

On April 12, take a seat at the table to discuss the state of the meetings industry in Canada – and where we go from here…

Join CanSPEP (Canadian Society of Professional Event Planners) and the Canada East Chapter of PCMA (Professional Convention Management Association) for an early morning session on the state of the meetings industry in Canada – and where we go from here.  It will be a  Breakfast, Panel & Round Table Discussions (7:30 – 9:30 AM) at the Novotel Ottawa.

The morning will start with a panel discussion with Reggie Lang of WestJet, representing Meetings Mean Business Canada, Francois Brunet of D.E. Systems, representing PCMA Canada East and Natalie Lowe of Celebrate Niagara, representing CanSPEP – as well as representatives from the business and government sectors.

Following the panel will be round table discussions on key issues in the meetings industry – from environmental and social responsibility, security and how meetings help address social problems like isolation and increase dialogue.

This will be an exciting and action oriented morning with opportunities for you and your business.

Registration for CanSPEP & PCMA Members is $25;
Non-members can join us for $40. 

Come and help us discuss the future of our dynamic industry!
