I always get excited when a client expresses an interest in holding their conference in Niagara Falls. Why? Simply put, meetings held in Niagara Falls always end up being an awesome experience. Niagara Falls not only has one of the natural wonders of the world, world class facilities, superb hotels, amazing wineries, unique off-site venues, celebrity chefs and award-winning restaurants, it has a spirit of cooperation amongst its partners that ensures your meeting will be a resounding success. People in Niagara Falls care – they care about you, your meeting and your delegates – it makes for a win-win situation for all. I have held many successful conferences and meetings in the Falls, and all experienced record attendance and higher than normal satisfaction ratings from attendees. I can hardly wait to go back!
ConferSense Planners Inc.
The Team at Niagara Falls Tourism were directly instrumental to my client’s recent conference success in Niagara Falls. We leaned on NFT for local supplier referrals – all of whom turned out to be outstanding partners I wish we could package and take with us each year. From local materials (maps, area guides) to the conference promotional video, NFT were outstanding in all areas. Thank you for your amazing service and professionalism and for always being available for even the craziest of questions!

Niagara Falls Tourism provided a one stop shop for us when sourcing our 850 delegate, multiple day conference. They helped with not only venues but other vendors as well. I have a sense of comfort with someone that knows the area so well. Also, the staff at Niagara Falls Tourism are so nice and helpful, pleasure to work with.
