Dear Business Meetings and Events Industry supporter,
As Provinces and Territories slowly begin to reopen, businesses that rely on the Business Meetings and Events industry need a clear reopening plan to ensure they can weather the impacts of COVID-19. As a leader of one of Canada’s largest meetings and events associations, I am reaching out to you today to ask for your help.
Meetings Mean Business Canada has launched a letter-writing campaign targeting Members of Provincial Parliaments across Canada. By using Push Politics, we have a platform that makes it easy to send the message directly to your MPP, MLA, MNA or MHA that:
- Business Meetings and Events must not be grouped under mass gatherings and that;
- Governments must fast-track the reopening of the Business Meetings and Events Sector by working with our industry leaders now.
Sending a letter is simple and it takes 30 seconds. Please visit www.tourismcounts.ca/meetagain and click “Send Your Letter” to ask your MPP, MLA, MNA, or MHA to take immediate action by supporting this sector and saving the businesses and jobs in your community that rely on Business Meetings and Events.
I am asking that as association leaders – please encourage your members, colleagues, suppliers and extended network to send a letter and to share this initiative on your corporate and personal social media channels – we all need to come together as one industry to ensure our voice is heard loud and clear!
To be clear, to ensure the survival of this industry, bold measures are needed now – within days, not weeks or months. We collectively need to activate our sector and all those that rely on Business Meetings and Events to pressure the government for immediate action.
Chair, Meetings Mean Business Canada
