Everyone played a role in its success."

About the award winning program:
Both awards were for the same event that PDS produced for a client with 900 attendees in Vancouver, BC Canada.  This program was designed to celebrate our true Canadian culture and cuisine, while engaging guests in immersive West Coast experiences and adventures.

It featured Vancouver's most exclusive venues and Canada's most celebrated chefs; activities that gave a sense of place, and an opportunity to connect with Canadians; a dine around program showcasing Vancouver's diverse culinary scene and rewarding the client's 25 year service award-winners; a gala that transformed a convention hall into a uniquely Canadian experience, complete with Northern Lights, a rainforest, indigenous entertainment, some good 'ol hockey, Canadian craft beer and a private performance by Canadian icon, Sarah McLachlan.
