Meet in Canada

Did you know that business travellers in Canada spend 4X more than leisure travellers and each business participant spends an average $668 per event?

Business visitors attend meetings, trade shows, exhibitions, conferences, conventions and incentive programs.

Face-to-face business events connect people and are a catalyst for collaboration and investment. These connections spur high-value jobs and inspire innovation among academic thought leaders for the advancement of all industries.

Business visitors often extend their trips, or return as leisure visitors, to explore Canada and enjoy local culture, cuisine, activities and attractions.

Hosted-in-Canada business events can help rebuild the Canadian economy!
