A great start to 2016 January


Hi my faithful readers! Happy New Year!
Here’s hoping 2016 brings you nothing but happiness, prosperity, and wonderful things.

It’s been a pretty quiet month, for the most part, as it often is in January;
Went to Ottawa for the annual conference specifically focused on the Association market.
I have a number of Annual Sales Conference RFPs floating around the destinations being considered are
between:     Outaouais
                      Laurentians
                      Eastern Townships
                      Quebec City 

Side Note: these are basically repeat clients whom are always looking to do different destinations for their annual programs &/or events in the upcoming 2016-17 season. Don’t be fooled even though it’s repeat business and a well oiled machine (on my part) it STILL needs sorting out.
