MMBC is the voice of Canada’s meetings and business events industry, but did you know that we also support advocacy initiatives by fellow industry groups? Besides our own Meet In Canada campaign, here are the activities we are currently supporting:
#OpenTheBorder: The Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) is calling on the federal government to accelerate the safe reopening of the Canada-U.S. border, including setting a firm reopening date, sharing its plan with the travel/tourism industry and clarifying Canada’s policy on vaccination certification. MMBC is an active member of TIAC’s Recovery Taskforce.
#FasterTogether: More than 240 organizations are behind a campaign encouraging all Canadians to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The Faster Together Coalition offers research and polling data as well as creative material that any organization is free to share with their audiences.
#HardestHit: The Coalition of Hardest Hit Businesses is asking the federal government to roll out sector-specific support for travel and tourism’s hardest hit businesses to ensure their survival into the fall and winter.
#TimeToTravel: The Canadian Travel & Tourism Roundtable is an industry coalition calling on all levels of government to work together to streamline and clarify rules for a timely return to safe and accessible travel.
#MeetInCanada is an MMBC initiative calling on corporate, association and incentive program clients to help rebuild Canada’s economy by meeting in Canada when restrictions are lifted.
The Meet In Canada landing page features campaign material that can be shared on your website, in eblasts and on social media.
