In the Toronto marketplace there are three industry functions not to be missed from a holiday networking point of view, and Tourism Kelowna had its presence at all three. The MPI Gala Event, the Site Holiday Social and the CSAE Holiday Event each have important roles in the three markets segments that interest our destination - Corporate, Incentive and Association. It's interesting to note that in a year of slow recovery, all three industry events had the best attendance ever to date with on average fifty percent of the guests being meeting planners. Overall everyone had a positive economic outlook for 2012 and it was a great opportunity for networking and promoting Kelowna for meetings and events. If you would like to discuss these events or the Toronto market please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-265-3464.
