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
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.
I attended two great Wedding Shows this month:
Marions-Nous at Place Bonaventure
The National Wedding Show at Palais des Congres in Montreal
Speaking of weddings .. this past weekend via WPIC
I certified another batch of Wedding Planners right here in Montreal.
In case you were wondering, on the teaching front it’s been extremely quiet this session. Only have one online class at ilasalle and two classes at Trebas Institute’s newly created Event and Show Management program. Yes I LOVE it !!
I also attended a few openings this month:
Checked out the Renaissance Hotel downtown and OMG it’s so gorgeous – it’s super modern and sexy and wow! It’s very Montreal. They even hired graffiti artists to do their wall art. “ouu lalala”
My husband and I also went to the La Sucrerie de la Montagne in Rigaud. SUBLIME experience and we met a beautiful wolf (yes wold) Lulu what a sweetheart!!
Lastly Fêtes des Neiges they had a ROCKING DJ, tasty Food Trucks, adventurous Dog Sled Rides, Fierce Tubing, a FABULOUS Ferris wheel, Winter Ziplining (yes ziplining in winter) – it was EPIC and FANTASTIC. Great family fun young and old.
Stay tuned for February, which is shaping up to be a very busy month. See you then!
