On behalf of the entire Vancouver hospitality community, Tourism Vancouver President and CEO Ty Speer along with our Meetings and Conventions team shared a celebratory toast and gave a heartfelt thanks to a few of our clients for bringing their meetings to Vancouver. By choosing Vancouver, these groups found a partner invested in their success, and we encourage the meeting professionals and association and corporate leaders who experienced Vancouver as a convention destination firsthand during PCMA Convening Leaders to likewise partner with us for their next event. Cheers!
