This Hosted Buyer program is open to qualified decision makers who may consider three or more Canadian provinces for their business events.

Qualified decision makers are:

  • Association Executives of international, national, or regional associations

  • Independent/Full-Service Meeting Professionals who handle all planning and execution of their Canadian-based association or corporate clients.

If you are looking for the best possible destinations for your annual conventions and other important business events, Destination Direct Canada is the place to be!

As a Hosted Buyer with Destination Direct, you will connect with Canadian Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) representatives in a private, professional environment, to discuss your meeting requirements in detail. No noise and distraction. Just productive conversations and information about financial incentives and other cost-saving benefits for your business events. It’s a smart, time-saving way for you to do business!

Even better, Destination Direct Canada, will cover your transportation, your accommodation, all meals and social events during your stay!

You’ll get to network with fellow associations executives, negotiate money-saving deals for your organization and enjoy great education – at no cost to you or your association! Isn’t that a sweet deal? A limited number of Hosted Buyer spots are available. See if you qualify and apply here.

Everything was wonderful and perfect. I really enjoyed the first day luncheon and I feel that “round table” discussion could have went on longer. I love to learn!!!
