PLANNING ESSENTIALS

Get a good night’s rest

Getting out of bed can get pretty tough here. Cozy slopeside lodges, lakeside boutique hotels and luxury resorts offer great variety. Everyone takes pride in a warm welcome and comfortable stay. Some of the big names you’ll know include Delta, Fairmont, Four Seasons, Hilton, Pan Pacific and Westin.

Stretch your budget in Canada

It’s a fact. Event dollars go further in Canada. With a Candian dollar hovering between 25 to 30% below the U.S. dollar, planners are encouraged to enhance their meeting experience here. Dollars saved on the program requirements can translate into more bells and whistles or your bottom line, you pick.
