HOSTED BUYERS – WHY BE HERE?
Here are the Top 10 Reasons why Destination Direct Canada is the place to be for Association Executives, Corporate Meeting and Incentive Planners and Independent/Full Service Meeting Professionals who care about the success of their Annual Conventions and other important business events:

SAVE TIME AND EFFORT.
This is where you’ll meet most of the Canadian Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) – all in one place, all in one event! It’s like traveling across Canada in less than two days!

 

VALUABLE EDUCATION.
Learn directly from the pros on how to leverage the DMO benefit to elevate your events. DMO reps are the people who know their destination inside out. Is the fit right for your meeting? What new, unique meeting venues/hotels are available or on the horizon?

 

SAVE MONEY.
Did you know that when you work with the DMO first, your organization may be eligible for funding support or other cost-saving programs? Find out what’s available, you’ll be surprised at how much help these DMOs can offer!

 

PAY NOTHING.
Hosted Buyers’ travel, accommodation, group meals, networking events and education are complimentary to qualified applicants.

 

BENEFICIAL CONVERSATIONS.
Witness for yourself a new way to connect with supplier partners, with our meeting suite concept. There you will meet in a private, professional space conducive to productive, business-driven conversations.

 

CONNECT WITH PEERS.
Meet other Hosted Buyers from across Canada as well as Ottawa-based association executives and meeting industry movers and shakers at REVEAL Social 2019.

 

FIND HELP.
Attend the CSAE Tête-à-Tête Tradeshow and make contact other suppliers – from AV companies to speaker bureaus and consultants – who can help your association do better.  

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP.
While at Tête-à-Tête, connect with business leaders and hear inspiring keynote speakers (program here).

 

RED CARPET TREATMENT.
This is an event organized by meeting planners – so you know we’re going to be working extra hard to be sure everything runs smoothly. There’s no greater challenge than hosting a conference for conference planners! Feel like the VIP you are with special attention from our DMO partners, our sponsors and our special event hosts.
