12:00 PM CONCLUSION
Attendees are welcomed with some coffee & tea, and usually a light assortment of breakfast options.
Some events will feature a short speaker session or workshop, while others reserve this time for networking or enjoying a break from the office.
This is the host venue's opportunity to shine!
Featuring some fresh and delicious menu options, the host venue takes this opportunity to showcase their creativity and flare.
We start with opening remarks at the listed start time.
Event planners are encouraged to arrive on time in order to enter the business card draw.
From here, the planners are escorted to the speed meeting session.
Our planners meet and engage with vendors in a casual, relaxed and fun environment.
Both planners and vendors appreciate gathering information and contacts in this efficient program.
MEET & GREET
As a vendor, you'll have the opportunity to create strong brand impact and memorable connections via these one-on-one meetings.
Each meeting lasts approximately five minutes, so it's important to have all your information organized and ready to present.
TOP OF MIND
Some vendors will also provide small swag for each planner. This is a great way to keep your brand top of mind.
Using a tablet is a great way to showcase your venue or service.
While the meetings are only five minutes, you can exchange business cards, schedule a site visit, and you'll have an opportunity to continue your conversation during the light reception to follow.
CONTINUE THE DIALOGUE
After the speed meetings, it's time to enjoy a little food, some beverage, and the business card draw!
Our host venue will sometimes spoil us with a few tricks up their sleeve... including a mimosa feature!
THE HOST WITH THE MOST
Our host venues can always be trusted to offer up some of their best flavours!
KEEPING IT LIVELY
It's not every event do we get to feature a local DJ.
Once beverages are in hand, and mouths have been fed, we get to the exciting segment of prize giveaways!
Vendor prizes often include overnight stays, dining and wine packages and more!
THE MOMENT WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR
As a vendor, you'll get the spotlight as you draw the winner.
If there's one thing our vendors know, it's how to deliver a good time!
Make a great impression and lasting relationship with our community of planners.
AND THE WINNER IS...
THAT'S A WRAP
Our event concludes with some final remarks, but vendors and planners are welcome to mingle and continue the conversation.
