Will I receive full Hosted Buyer profiles, including contact information and meetings details?
Even those I did not have a meeting with?
How are the Hosted Buyers being qualified?
In all cases the applicant must attest that they recommend or directly purchase accommodation, meeting space, and/or related meeting services with the possibility of moving their conferences/meetings across a minimum of the provinces or territories in Canada. Finally they must complete a detailed application form and provide two references.
Destination Direct Canada will verify the information and call references.
Who is the decision-maker on the acceptance of the Hosted Buyers?
How does the pairing of appointments work?
Will I get speaking time?
Can Hosted Buyers block time slots?
Hosted Buyers are expected to be available for appointments the entire afternoon on Monday, January 27th and all day on Tuesday, January 28th. We encourage our Hosted Buyers to fulfill their mandatory appointments before blocking timeslots. However if a Hosted Buyer has a free time slot, he/she will be free to return to their own suite for the duration of the appointment. We do not anticipate this would affect DMOs’ appointment packages.
Will Destination Direct Canada provide preferred décor and flower companies?
Can we bring in local food and beverage into our suite?
To make things easy, you can arrange for food and beverage to be catered to your suite through our official caterer. If a specialty item typical of your destination is not available through our official caterer, you can of course bring these “goodies” with you, or ask another caterer/ retailer to deliver.
Can we do room drops?
