Destination Canada Business Events is collecting data to help federal and provincial governments understand the economic impact of the business events industry.

By contributing your data they will be better able to understand the economic impact of COVID-19 to the entire Canadian business events community. In return for your input, they will share the national situational analysis with you weekly to help inform your own recovery plans. 

Destination Canada Business Events is asking for event planners to help by collating the details of postponed or cancelled events and their impact to your business. No matter where your business falls within the business events supply chain (event organizer, hotel, convention centre, DMC, A/V, decor, food & beverage venue, meeting venue, transportation, etc.), it is important that you contribute to this national study. 

Help capture the whole picture:
 
Submit your weekly report from your CRM (Simpleview, IDSS, Excel), providing a list of postponed or cancelled events, including the following information (agreed-upon industry definitions of postponed or cancelled events can be found here):

  • name of event
  • organization name and headquarter location
  • origin of delegates (Provincial, Canada, US, or International)
  • # of attendees
  • event dates
  • segment of your event (association conference, corporate meeting, incentive trip, trade show/exhibition )
  • economic impact (if known or in CRM)

Please submit your report by noon Friday, and each week thereafter, until notified otherwise, so that we can capture the most robust data set possible.  

There are two ways to confidentially contribute your data, choose a method that works best for you:
 
By confidential email direct to the Conference Board of Canada

By confidential email direct to Destination Canada Business Events

If you have any questions at all, please contact Angela Trunzo, Market Intelligence Analyst, Business Events at Destination Canada at Trunzo.angela@destinationcanada.com or 204-914-8692.
