Planning Essentials

Get a good night’s rest

Book your people into four and five-star branded hotels: Hilton, Radisson, Marriott are just a few of the trusted names placed in Niagara’s “Fallsview” group of hotels – ones that offer priceless views of the famous Niagara Falls. Or, choose intimate, family-run hotels that overflow with one-on-one warmth and hospitality.

Stretch your budget in Canada

It’s a fact. Event dollars go further in Canada. With the Canadian dollar hovering between 25 and 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.
