COVID-19 UPDATE

 

April 29, 2020

We shall Collaborate, Cultivate and Elevate again. The EVENT moves to April 15-17, 2021.

The health and safety of our attendees and partners remains our number one focus in our decision making. Therefore, in the interest of our collective health and well-being, the Founders, Advisors, and Co-Chairs of The EVENT 2020 have decided to postpone The EVENT to April 15-17, 2021.

Several reasons contributed towards this tough decision including that fall is a demanding time for our industry and that precious recovery time in the company of family members will be a huge priority.

As Chapter 3 continues to unfold, the EVENT DARES you to SHARE in helping us continue to write our story. How has COVID-19 brought change to the way you collaborate, cultivate and elevate? What’s your “new normal” of how to meet?

More details will be available in the coming months including ways to stay connected with us until we can meet face to face once again. In the meantime, thank you for your dedication to our industry and for your continued support. Stay health and stay safe.

If you have any questions, please contact Leslie Wright at leslie@the-event.ca.

The GOAL

Simply put, our goal is to do things differently.  We want to challenge the "typical" conference format. We are not oblivious to the fact that there are many education and networking choices for event professionals to invest their resources.  Cultivation, Collaboration, and Elevation will guide us to our goal to make the EVENT stand apart from the others.

 

the Partnership

 For the first time in recent Canadian history, three Meeting Professionals International (MPI) chapters have partnered together to offer their memberships something bigger and better.  Bringing together three unique meeting communities will give event participants the chance to expand network circles while strengthening existing ones.
