ISES: We are your industry

MPI: Working together

PCMA: Educational excellence

Welcome from the International Special Events Society Vancouver chapter, entering its 2012 season and its 19th year in existence. ISES is a volunteer organization of working professionals dedicated to promoting and supporting the event industries. Few statistics show exactly how much business our industry generates in Vancouver, but the event industries touch every person reading this in some way. Each time an event occurs in the city, an event professional has planned or executed it. At conservative estimate, our industry represents millions of dollars generated in sales and jobs within Vancouver’s marketplace each year. In Vancouver, the industry runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and it is internationally awarded and recognized. ISES Vancouver is proud to be a supporting organization dedicated to helping the field grow and flourish. Our aim is to support one another in development and education. 2012 promises to be an active year. ISES Vancouver has won the coveted Spirit of Excellence Award for Marketing and Communications from ISES International. With an ever-increasing membership and a renewed and dynamic board, we look forward to hosting more events than ever. Our values focus on education, networking and entertaining. Each year we host 10 educational events dedicated to providing voice and learning to our members. This year we are also contributing a range of social events that will allow our members to get together and network. Here’s looking forward to another year! Brock Lumsden, president ISES Vancouver

At the 2011 National Meetings Industry Day of Meeting Professionals International, I spoke of the importance of collaboration. The meetings industry is strong, exciting and vibrant because so many professionals in its many subsets come together to create magic. It is the mandate of our boards this year to extend this collaboration, working together with all peers to bring information and high-quality education to British Columbia. On an international level, MPI has made changes to open chains of communication and get colleagues talking to one another globally. Our websites provide tools, job postings, white papers and other opportunities for members and non-members. Please visit www. mpibcchapter.com and www.mpiwe.org for this information. This year we are also proud to welcome over 100 student members. The MPI B.C. chapter is seizing strategic bigger-picture opportunities and equipping members to be innovators, entrepreneurs and experts. We encourage networking and forming partnerships, so that we can become more successful for our industry and make the world a better place through our corporate social-responsibility programs. After all, meetings mean business, and meetings change the world. MPI, the meeting and event industry’s largest and most vibrant global community, helps its members thrive by providing human connections to knowledge and ideas, relationships and markets. Melissa Moskal, CMP, president MPI British Columbia

The mission of the Professional Convention Management Association is to deliver breakthrough education and promote professional convention management. As the premier provider of continuing education in the meetings-management profession, PCMA focuses its education on the industry issues and insights that professionals are seeking today. From the award-winning Convene magazine to PCMA’s annual meeting, members come away with the tools that they need to advance their careers. With 17 chapters and more than 6,000 members, professionals and suppliers come together to learn, network and even participate in projects such as PCMA’s Hospitality Helping Hands. The PCMA Canada West chapter reaches from Manitoba to Vancouver Island with its membership, although the majority of members are located in and around the Vancouver region. Generally meeting quarterly throughout the year, the Canada West chapter follows the practice of delivering high levels of education and networking and participates in local volunteerism. For further information, please visit our website at www.pcma.org or contact us directly for information on membership. Diana Reid, president PCMA Canada West chapter

To maximize ROI, “look at the function of the event when cutting costs,” says Deborah Wallace, president, the Finer Details Event Planning

By Sarah Willard arties, conferences and conventions spark relationships that can make all the difference to your business. Pre-recession, these events were often glamorous, with little financial accountability. Then hard times took their toll. While at first many companies cancelled events, most discovered before long that this wasn’t the best option. The need to gather has prevailed, and the post-recession economy has encouraged event-planners and their clients to find better, cheaper ways of doing things. Maximal return on investment (ROI) is essential. Deborah Wallace, president of the Finer Details Event Planning Inc., Vancouver, says this can be accomplished through effective surveying and debriefing of staff, both the event-planner’s and the client’s. She advises placing the information into a final report that can be serve as an invaluable reference when the event gets repeated the following year. How do event-planners cut costs while helping clients make a splash? With strategy and creativity. Strategy involves thoroughly knowing one’s objectives, targeting both the audience and the event-planning team and measuring success effectively. Wallace says to “look at the function of the event when cutting costs.” For example, if the purpose is to hand out

Another trend: “Gone are the days of having a year or two to plan an event,” observes Matt O’Donnell, president and executive producer for Vancouver-based Tantalus Productions, which works on the tech side. O’Donnell stresses the importance of delegating knowledgeable staff to be the key go-betweens for the company and the event-planner: “It can be stressful on a planner or producer if there are delays in answers.” Constraints of time and money are making invitees much more selective about which events to attend. They also want proof of value. This is where creativity can really shine. “Creativity isn’t necessarily the big wow

When organizing events, does your staff get less productive? By Deborah Wallace Your annual party is next week, and your staff members are up to their eyebrows in decorations, invitation lists and menus. Business events are effective ways of showcasing your organization, introducing new products, thanking customers and celebrating with staff and stakeholders. Yet if an event causes day-to-day work to suffer, it may cost you more than you realize. What’s the price of delayed shipments to customers, overworked employees and

squabbling in the lunch room over who gets to plan the next company party? Here’s how it might look in dollars and cents if you use your own in-house event-planning committee: Ą Planning: 4 months x 10 hours per month x 5 staff members = 200 party hours Ą Day of event: 8 hours x 10 staff members = 80 party hours Ą Next-day clean-up and follow-up: 4 hours x 5 staff members = 20 party hours

Ą Total party hours: 300 x $25 on average per hour = $7,500 An event-planning company can help you cut costs, free up your staff and sales team to maintain your productivity before and at the event and produce a polished, professional event to represent your business well.

factor any more. It’s helping the client deliver the message, reinforce [the] brand with unique ways of expressing that through the event,â€? explains O’Donnell. Events that engage people and make participants out of attendees can generate interest. Opt for a talented local act instead of a high-proďŹ le band. Host your

event in a non-traditional venue, such as a farm in the countryside. Use creative lighting and audiovisual techniques to create an impressive ambience. Involving non-proďŹ ts, even at the planning stages, is another idea. Donations to local charities, raes and silent auctions are all ways of assisting the community

that foster positive impressions of your organization and can draw more attendees. High-proďŹ le speaker and entertainment events are also becoming big trends. Once-in-a-lifetime experiences can leave guests wondering, “Who’s it going to be next year?â€? Of course, sometimes things don’t work out the way you expect. If attendance is low, a good event organizer will ďŹ nd out why, so as to ďŹ x it for next time. The rise of social media highlights the necessity of conversing within one’s own professional community. Still, meeting together in person confers beneďŹ ts that Twitter and Facebook can’t match. Ä„

By Noa Glouberman ith world-class facilities set against a breathtaking backdrop of ocean and mountains, Vancouver is a top destination for meetings and events. “One of the first things I think of is the Vancouver Convention Centre, [with] its new West Building expansion,” remarks Ian Holliday, a project director at Sea to Sky Meeting Management Inc. “The services within the convention centre itself, including the culinary expertise of executive chef Blair Rasmussen, are extraordinary. Plus, the views of the harbour can’t be beat.” Some of the town’s hottest venues:

Support staff can be hired for special security or assistance. Audiovisual and other gear can also be provided. One of Library Square’s most special spaces is the Promenade, a soaring glass atrium that seats up to 400 banquet-style or fits 700 standing. “The Promenade lets you customize your special event with your preferred service-providers,” says conference centre co-ordinator Kathleen Barber. “You may hire your favourite caterer, decorator [or] audio service … and provide your own beverages.”

Recent renovations have introduced a glass-wall–enclosed gallery. “The space is multi-functional and can be configured in a variety of setups [to accommodate up to] 70 people,” says general manager Stacey Klyne. The glass partition gives guests access to the entire deck while also letting them take in the view.

Work of art On Hornby Street, the Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art, named after the acclaimed Haida artist, writer and spokesman, promotes the region’s contemporary aboriginal art. Showcasing 40 pieces of Reid’s own gold and silver jewelry and a full-scale totem pole by James Hart, it offers approximately 4,000 square feet of adaptable meeting space, including a front stage equipped with an LCD projector, a 65-inch screen, speakers and a cordless microphone. The gift shop is an excellent source for Northwest Coast items for speakers and other special guests, while the gallery also provides corporate gifts for delegates.

Blank canvas Canvas Lounge, situated on a cobbled street in Vancouver’s historic Gastown, is a hip space for social, cultural and corporate events. Suiting up to 250 guests, it has wireless Internet, two LCD screens, a media wall (a branded wall for a red-carpet event that includes the name or logo of a company) and catering by award-winning executive chef Dobrosav Kovacevic. The lounge is proud of its commitment

to sustainability. “We are a carbon-neutral lounge,” notes event manager Ashley Li, who lists energy-efficient LED lighting, air dryers in place of paper-towel dispensers and a catering menu that features local, organic and Ocean Wise foods among her venue’s environmental initiatives.

By Noa Glouberman eam-building events like scavenger hunts, enjoying the great outdoors, dragon-boating, cooking and theatre improv are creative, physical ways of focusing people on outcomes. “Individuals must work together to complete the task or challenge that’s been set out for them,” explains Jackie Slavenova, president of Team Academy, which delivers corporate events in the style of activities on The Amazing Race and Survivor. She says that “playing really is the best way” of getting people to understand one another better.

Rock the boat At Sewell’s Marina in West Vancouver, companies can engage up to 180 team members in Sea Quest, a scavenger hunt that breaks participants into smaller groups, each with its own powerboat, and gives them tasks to accomplish. “They may have to count how many rungs are on a [certain] ladder … or bring back a pine cone from one of the coves,” explains group sales manager Hayley Sorenson. Many a group will end the day at the nearby BoatHouse Restaurant in Horseshoe Bay, which Sorenson calls “a terrific venue” where you can “celebrate your awards banquet or simply wrap up a beautiful day in Howe Sound.”

Hanging out The power of the outdoors can be harnessed to bring people to new levels of personal and group achievement. WildPlay Element Parks in Victoria, Nanaimo, Whistler and Maple Ridge offer a “suspended” obstacle course called Monkido. Following the concept of “monkey see, monkey do,” team members perform a series of aerial activities taking place between two and 18 metres above ground: crossing missing-plank bridges, ascending tree ladders and zip-lining. Grouse Mountain, on the North Shore, also provides team-building exercises like zip-lining, plus access to venues for up to 500 guests.

Stroke of genius A water activity with team-building potential is dragon-boating, in which people learn to “communicate effectively and paddle in unison, whether they’re racing against other teams or not,” says Andrew Reid, whose company, Big Fish Interactive, often organizes corporate events in False Creek. “Dragon-boating is a great business metaphor when it’s framed the right way.” “Paddling puts all the right elements in place for team members to realize that, ‘Hey, in a short amount of time we went from not being able to do something to doing it pretty well.’ It’s an excellent teaching tool for launching a new company strategy … based on teamwork and togetherness. You are, quite literally, all in the same boat.”

The Dirty Apron Cooking School gets people thinking and working together

Urban flavour Vancouver’s Dirty Apron Cooking School puts delegates together in the kitchen. Corporate groups split into teams, cooking against the clock to outdo their colleagues in preparing the tastiest dish. “Everyone loves food, and absolutely nothing unites people quite like creating and sharing a meal,” says corporate and private events manager Callie Cooper, who “can’t think of a better way to reward, unite and inspire a team than by learning, tasting and cooking together.” The school can host special events for up to 40 seated or 100 standing guests.

Acting up Vancouver Select Venues president Camille Juraj calls improvisational theatre an “awesome team-building tool.” Among the companies that create customdesigned improv events is the Vancouver TheatreSports League (VTSL). “The audience plays a role through giving suggestions or joining the actors onstage,” explains VTSL executive director Jay Ono. “We also offer creativity and presentationskills workshops that use exercises and games to reinforce such team-building concepts as encouraging and supporting others and accepting and valuing others’ ideas.” Success in improv comes from collaboration. The key, Ono says, is to create a supportive environment in which people feel comfortable taking risks, as in business. The VTSL can bring its team-building to you, or you can also book its 186-seat Improv Centre on Granville Island. Ą

2020 foresight Tourism Vancouver’s plan to make British Columbia’s urban centre a “world city” by 2020 involves ambitious ideas about transportation, arts and culture. New chair Howard Jang has said that as part of “entering Vancouver’s decade of culture,” Tourism Vancouver is “already working on a plan to have every month of every year be anchored by an internationally popular culture event” and will “also be pushing for more attractions along with arts and cultural institutions and meeting space, all with the objective of creating a destination where visitors come, stay and return to, and where more people will want to live.” The world-city vision was born of the Metro Vancouver tourism industry’s extensive Rethink process, which focused on major goals for the coming decade, as well as destination-marketing objectives. Hundreds of industry experts contributed to a strategy calling for year-round activities that draw visitors, establishment of a broader Metro Vancouver tourism council and the need for a Vancouver tourism master plan. Some of the bold ideas contemplated by Tourism Vancouver: a new Canada Indigenous Peoples’ Museum, a Canada Maritime Museum on the North Shore, an expansion of the east side of the Vancouver Convention Centre, satellite centres for both the Vancouver Aquarium and the Museum of Anthropology and a bullet train between Vancouver and San Francisco.

Vancouver, Coast & Mountains Tourism Region has entered into a new partnership with Green Tourism Canada (GTC) to help tourism operators reduce their carbon footprints. Following a pilot project funded by the Government of British Columbia, GTC launched a national certification program designed to help both industry and consumers understand how to lessen their impact and operate more sustainably. “It is very exciting for us to be developing Green Tourism to cover remote and wilderness areas as well as urban centres, for all types of tourism businesses,” said Kevan Ridgway, chief executive officer of Vancouver, Coast & Mountains. The GTC program is owned by Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS), based in the United Kingdom, the largest and most established third-party certification program of its type in the world. With over 13 years’ experience delivering sustainabletourism certification and having conducted over 6,000 assessments, GTBS has over 2,300 operators certified in the U.K. today. Designed for all types of tourism and hospitality businesses – accommodations, attractions, activity providers and restaurants – GTC conducts on-site assessments, providing third-party certification aligned with international standards (ISO14001) and Global Sustainable Tourism Criteria. Participants save costs, achieve operating efficiencies and improve their reputations and competitive advantages. GTC promotes greater employee engagement, productivity and retention. Certified operators also enjoy new marketing opportunities through increased exposure. So far, eight tourism businesses in the region have achieved GTC certification: the Capilano Suspension Bridge (gold), the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel (gold), the Refinery (gold), the Vancouver Aquarium (gold), the Vancouver Convention Centre (gold), the Listel Hotel (silver), Ziptrek Ecotours (silver) and West Coast Sightseeing (bronze). The partnership will make education and training available to all tourism operators in the region, from beginners wanting to figure out their footprints and find out about becoming more sustainable, to those who have been working on it for years and seek acknowledgment for their efforts and better access to the market of discerning “green” travellers. 28 MEETINGPLACES British Columbia 2012 BIV Magazines

Mobilizing quickly QuickMobile of Vancouver and PSAV Presentation Services have announced a strategic partnership to market and support mobile solutions for meetings and events world-wide, including associations, conference hotels, meeting planner and venue applications. The combined QuickMobile/PSAV offerings will greatly improve, extend and differentiate the experiences and outcomes of the events the applications serve. “Today, meeting and event-planners can leverage the power of mobile device technology to deliver real-time information to attendees and organizers, thereby greatly enhancing the overall event experience,” said David Snell, chief marketing officer, QuickMobile, in a release. “By simply touching an app on their mobile device, event delegates can use their iPhones, BlackBerrys, Androids, Windows 7 phones and tablets like the iPad to read speaker bios, update their own personal

schedules, view the event schedule at a glance, confidentially message other attendees, ask questions live to presenters and answer polls. Likewise, these same mobile tools can be used by meeting planners and event organizers to promote their event by communicating with social networking and third-party content providers, incorporating mobile travel tools and city guides, and supporting vendors in a trade show environment.” Snell explained that mobilizing an event not only eliminates the need for organizers to print show guides, which subsequently reduces costs, but it enables content to be customizable in real time. The new QuickMobile/ PSAV platform is scalable, depending on the needs of the event. Sponsored advertising also can be incorporated throughout the application.

The new saltwater lap pool at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia

Raising rose-coloured glasses First opened in 1927 and reopened in 2011 following a full restoration, the Rosewood Hotel Georgia ushers in a new era of Vancouver glamour. Recently, the hotel celebrated the opening of Reflections, an outdoor bar and lounge available for events. With its flowing waterfall, Reflections is situated on the fourth floor atop the roof of the hotel’s historic Spanish Ballroom. A central fire pit, an island bar, teak couches, heated lamps, illuminating lanterns and upbeat music provide the sophisticated canvas for evening cocktails and daytime eating. The light menu offers snacks, salads and items from the grill; fresh shucked oysters, charcuterie and cheeses; grilled lobster panini; beef sliders; grilled pizzas; and lamb popsicles. Wines are both global and British Columbian, chosen for quality and value. Vintage and original cocktails are crafted with premium spirits, house-made bitters, fresh citrus and herbs. Meanwhile, a series of appointments of high-level staff signals a commitment to talent and excellence both at the landmark hotel and at Hawksworth Restaurant, located there. Kristian Eligh has been named chef de cuisine at Hawksworth. With over a decade of culinary experience, Eligh has been opening chef de cuisine at Market by Jean-Georges at the Shangri-La Hotel and chef de cuisine at Diva at the Metropolitan Hotel. Ken Nakano has been appointed head chef for Reflections, room service, banqueting, 1927 and Prohibition (opening in spring 2012), all at the hotel. Brad Stanton has been appointed bar and lounge manager for the hotel’s drinks program, overseeing a cocktail menu that mixes pre-Prohibition classics with innovative original creations, reflecting the hotel’s history and its modern reincarnation. Lindsay Koropchuk has been appointed spa manager for Sense: A Rosewood Spa. With five elegant treatment rooms, the spa features stylish artwork and silver accents, offering access to the hotel’s saltwater lap pool and fitness centre. Café Bel opens at the hotel later in 2011. (For more on the Rosewood Hotel Georgia, see pages 51–52.)

MAKING ROOM DYNAMICS WORK FOR YOU

Tips on choosing the right seating arrangement for your meeting Theatre? Classroom? Banquet? Conference? U-shape? Which type of meeting room setup should you use? The answer depends on the objectives of the individual function. Use the information below to help you decide which of the seven major meeting-room designs will work best for your event.

Banquet style

Theatre style Overview: Chairs are lined up in rows facing the speaker. The rows can be straight, semicircular or herringbone (angled toward the front of the room). If space isn’t an issue, it’s best to offset each row so that delegates are not sitting directly behind one another. Best usage: When attendees take on the characteristics of an audience (e.g., listening to a speaker or watching a slide presentation), theatre style is the most efficient setup. This design is also used to maximize the seating capacity of a meeting room or allow the audience to be as close to the speaker as possible. It is not recommended for taking notes, referring to material in binders or any event at which food is served.

Reception

Overview: Guests are seated at round tables, usually 60, 66 or 72 inches in diameter. Best usage: Banquet style is the setup of choice for most meal functions. In addition, it’s appropriate for small committee meetings and small breakout or study groups involving group interaction and note-taking.

Crescent style Overview: Attendees are seated at round tables, usually 60, 66 or 72 inches in diameter. Organizers remove the two or three chairs in which delegates would have their backs to the speaker, thus forming a crescent of seating facing the speaker. Best usage: This design works well when you need to use a room for meals and for an educational session that immediately follows. It’s also appropriate for general sessions at which attendees break into small discussion groups in the same room.

Classroom style Overview: Long, narrow tables are positioned in front of rows of chairs facing the speaker. The tables usually abut one another, although tables that extend beyond the stage ideally should be angled toward the speaker in order to provide better viewing. Water pitchers and glasses are typically placed on the tables. Best usage: Classroom style is the best setup for situations in which the presenter is expected to do most of the talking and when delegates must take notes, refer to material in binders or work on computer equipment. It’s also the most comfortable design for very long sessions.

Conference style Overview: Delegates are seated on all four sides of a table. For smaller groups (16 persons or fewer), a single conference table is typically used. For larger groups, several six-foot or eight-foot tables are often combined to create a solid rectangular table. Best usage: The conference-style setup is often used for board meetings, committee meetings and other smaller functions at which interaction among participants is expected. This design also can be used for high-level food and beverage functions with a small number of guests.

U-shape Overview: Rectangular tables are positioned to form a “U.� Seating is usually on the outside of the U, but it’s possible to seat delegates on both inside legs of the U. Best usage: The U-shape setup is often used for board of directors meetings, committee meetings and breakout sessions involving audiovisual presentations because all attendees can see the AV when the screen is placed at the open end of the U. It also can be used for banquets, with seating on all sides of the U.

Hollow rectangle Overview: 30-inch-wide classroom tables are arranged in a square or other multi-sided design in which the centre of the design is empty. Best usage: Larger committee or board meetings of 17 to 30 persons at which interaction among attendees is important can beneďŹ t from the hollow rectangle design. (Note: Avoid long straight sections of tables more than 12 feet long. Octagons and hexagons work well to improve sight lines among attendees.)

PROVINCEWIDE VENUES & SERVICES

How to use Meeting Places’ region-by-region directories of venues and services Welcome to the meeting planners’ resource section of Meeting Places, including directories of all the resources you’ll need for planning meetings, conferences, conventions and trade shows throughout British Columbia. Start by using the colour-coded map of British Columbia on page 42 to identify the region of your intended event. Then use the two main sections of the Meeting Places resource guide: Meeting Places at a Glance, which offers details of meeting venues in each region; and regional directories, which guide you to all the services you’ll need wherever you are holding your event.

Meeting Places at a Glance

Regional Directories

Company Index

If you’re looking for details of specific venues, start with Meeting Places at a Glance, below. First check the B.C. map on page 42 to confirm which region your event is in, then browse the listings under that region.

Refer to the B.C. map on page 42 for the page numbers of individual regional directories. The introductory pages will update you on the latest news: new conference or convention facilities that have come on-line in the past year, or significant meeting-venue renovations. The directories that ensue list the services available in each of the region’s towns and cities.

If you already know the company you want for the job, simply turn to the company index at the back of the regional directories. You’ll find an alphabetized listing of every company, referring you to the page that includes a description of the company and contact information.

By Noa Glouberman he International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) recently ranked Vancouver North America’s top city for international meetings, judging from the 58 international meetings (more than any other city in the running) held here in 2010. “Vancouver’s … world-class livability, exceptional tourism and conference services make a compelling case,” Gregor Robertson, Vancouver’s mayor, commented at the time. “ICCA’s report not only acknowledges the range of facilities and resources Vancouver has to offer, but also shows the entire world that our city is a great place to host meetings and conventions.”

T

All around the town At the core of the Lower Mainland’s meeting-space scene are the Vancouver Convention Centre and its West Building, the latter of which increased the award-winning venue’s pre-function, meeting, exhibition and ballroom space to 466,500 square feet. “We’re now attracting more high-profile international conventions,” confirms Ken Cretney, general manager of the convention centre. “Our world-class facility, located on the city centre’s waterfront … always leaves a positive and memorable impression on our delegates.” (For more on the centre, see page 25.)

The Delta Town & Country Inn also hosts business functions, with seven distinct rooms and an outdoor event space that includes a poolside patio, lawn and gazebo.

Distinguished awards and beekeeping at upscale hotels The Fairmont Vancouver Airport has been named the Best Airport Hotel – North America at the World Airport Awards 2011 in Copenhagen. The Fairmont Vancouver Airport ranked first over the Grand Hyatt DFW and the Westin Detroit Metropolitan Airport. It also placed fifth in the world on the World’s Top 10 Airport Hotels list. The hotel offers 392 spacious, fully soundproofed and beautifully appointed guestrooms and suites, all with floorto-ceiling views of the airport runways, ocean and mountains. The hotel has a “quiet zone” and hypoallergenic floors. Other features include Globe@YVR restaurant and Jetside Bar, both with great views of the runway and award-winning Pacific Northwest cuisine; a full-service day spa and health club, complete with indoor mechanized lap pool; and state-of-the-art meeting facilities with over 8,800 square feet of space. Seeking a perfect gift? The Fairmont Vancouver Airport and Fairmont Waterfront have launched local honey products. Produced by the bees that reside on the Vancouver International Airport’s land at McDonald Beach Park, the airport hotel’s honey mixes sweet and spicy notes. Meanwhile, the Fairmont Waterfront’s rooftop apiary overlooking Burrard Inlet is home to a half million honeybees during summer. Here, a 600pound harvest inspired the hotel’s honey truffles, the Bee’s Knees, created in partnership with B.C.’s legendary Rogers’ Chocolates. In summer, guests can join weekly garden and hive tours with the resident beekeeper and learn about the Fairmont Waterfront’s sustainability practices.

Meet in Whistler, Canada and Discover the Power to Inspire

W

histler, Canada’s highly-acclaimed year-round destination resort, is the location of choice for meeting planners and delegates seeking elevated experiences and exceptional value. Whistler consistently and successfully extends its enchanting alpine embrace to the world, as evidenced by its role as Host Mountain Resort for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Located 120 kilometres (75 miles) north of Vancouver, Whistler offers more than 5,400 guestrooms — including hotel rooms, condominiums, townhomes, B&Bs and chalets — 100-plus restaurants and bars, 20 spas, four championship golf courses, approximately 200 retail shops, and nearly 150,000 square feet of conference space. The Whistler Conference Centre alone provides 65,000 square feet of central

meeting space and distinctive, urban-style amenities. Meeting delegates can opt for the scenic, two-hour drive along the Sea to Sky Highway, enjoy a threehour rail journey on the Whistler Mountaineer or benefit from an eagle’s-eye view before arriving in Whistler via float plane or helicopter. In the heart of Whistler’s vibrant Village, visitors and locals congregate to dine, shop, unwind and rejuvenate. Post-meeting, guests can embark on endless adventures ranging from mountain biking and golfing, to hiking, rock climbing, ATV tours and water sports. Accolades such as the most skiable terrain and the longest ski season in North America have earned Whistler its reputation as a world-renowned winter sports mecca. Whistler is also a family-friendly resort and its enticing selection of spousal and children’s

programs have contributed to meeting planners who choose Whistler enjoying an increased attendance of up to 30%. Meet at the Roundhouse Lodge on Whistler Mountain after a breathtakingly scenic journey on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. Dine at the top of the bobsleigh track at the Whistler Sliding Center, convene in the stunning day lodge at Whistler Olympic Park, host a monumental event in the Istken Hall at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Center or venture deep into the backcountry via ATV. Whistler offers a range of extraordinary, off-site venues that exceed the expectations of the most discerning conference delegate. Benefit from alpine magic and unbelievable value. Meet in Whistler: discover, celebrate and share the power to inspire.

THOMPSON OKANAGAN

Valley values MEETING IN THE CORE OF WINE COUNTRY

By Peter Mitham he Thompson-Okanagan is at British Columbia’s crossroads. Stretching from Alberta to the American border, the region includes both the world-famous Rockies and the northernmost tip of the great Sonoran desert that runs south to Mexico. And the salmon runs in the Osoyoos and Adams rivers each autumn remind us that the Northwestern coast is just a few hours away. Centrality isn’t the region’s only appeal for conference planners. The local climate is arid, and sunny skies stretch over golf courses, ski hills and vineyards that produce some of Canada’s most flavourful wine grapes. All provide opportunities for off-site events where those attending corporate meetings can forget about work for a while and enjoy life. Conference venues are diverse, the region being a top tourist

destination. The Penticton Trade & Convention Centre has 60,000 square feet of meeting space suiting 35 to 3,500 attendees; the 320-suite Delta Grand Okanagan Resort in Kelowna has 30,000 square feet of conference space (including a ballroom accommodating 1,500 to 2,000); the smaller, 185-room Coast Capri Hotel offers 15,000 square feet of meeting facilities (also in Kelowna); Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops has 10,000 square feet of meeting space in its Activity Centre and more than 800 rooms; and the University of British Columbia Okanagan Campus in Kelowna can comfortably accommodate groups of 300 at a time, also with on-campus accommodation. 100

As a number of venues in the area lack on-site accommodation, smaller venues are key to planning events at the many places where delegates lack the option of staying over. In Kamloops, the Interior Savings Centre offers seating capacity of 6,400 and 20,000 square feet of exhibition space: the largest venue in town. The South Thompson Inn & Conference Centre can accommodate up to 200. The Kamloops Convention Centre at the 203-room Kamloops Towne Lodge has 30,000 square feet. A large conference, however, draws on accommodation at some of Kamloops’ nearly 3,000 guest rooms. The relationship between Sparkling Hill Resort and Predator Ridge Resort, adjacent properties in the hills above Vernon, illustrates the collaboration happening among some venues. Predator Ridge can accommodate golf tournaments of 300 people in summer and events for up to 120 in winter at its club house, but the standard event – usually a corporate meeting – numbers 60 or fewer. Sparkling Hill, on the other hand, can accommodate events for up to 220. Sparkling Hill’s 180-seat restaurant and remarkable spa offer alternatives for guests of Predator Ridge, while larger events at Sparkling Hill can take advantage of Predator Ridge’s several golf courses when they’re through with work. (For more on Predator Ridge, see page 28.) A small but all-inclusive meeting space is available just outside Kelowna in the newly refurbished Lake Okanagan Resort, which came under new ownership and management in summer 2010. Four thousand square feet of meeting space and guest rooms have seen a million dollars worth of upgrades. The resort touts 300 acres of property, a nine-hole executive par-three golf course and waterfront access among its amenities. Its waterfront location allows it to offer boating jaunts across Okanagan Lake to Gray Monk Estate Winery and other wineries in Okanagan Centre.

THOMPSON OKANAGAN Predator Ridge Golf Resort

The Podollan Inn, Salmon Arm, features B.C.’s largest outdoor free-form seasonal pool

Red, white, invite Wine-oriented events are key in the South Okanagan, the heart of B.C.’s œnoculture. The annual British Columbia Wine Grape Council conference regularly draws 500 persons or more to the Penticton Trade & Convention Centre. The adjacent South Okanagan Events Centre provides an additional 25,000 square feet of exhibit space. The rink area alone is 17,500 square feet and can easily fit 90 to 100 booths when the ice surface is protected by a sophisticated carbon cover that creates a more comfortable environment for exhibitors than plywood. VIP suites above provide breakout space. Penticton offers 1,880 hotel rooms at venues including the Penticton Lakeside Resort, which also offers meeting facilities, a casino and other amenities. South of Penticton lies Osoyoos, where the 226-room Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort & Spa offers desert-style accommodation adjacent to the 9,000-square-foot Nk’Mip Conference Centre, the largest conference facility south of Penticton. Rooftop terraces provide outdoor reception space and breathtaking views of the surrounding desert, home to cactus, rattlesnakes and various raptors. Additional capacity is available for major events – such as the Osoyoos Celebrity Wine Festival – that take advantage of 3,000 square feet of event space at Watermark Beach Resort as well as

Sparkling Hill Resort, overlooking Okanagan Lake

Key chain Delta devotes portfolio to Green Key certiďŹ cation In July 2011, Delta Hotels and Resorts became the ďŹ rst national hotel chain to commit its Canadian portfolio of properties to the new Green Key Meetings program developed by the Hotel Association of Canada and MPI Foundation Canada. In addition to being Green Key-certified, all 46 Delta Hotels and Resorts have received Green Key meetings certification, which provides meeting planners an unbiased guarantee of Deltaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to environmental stewardship. The Green Key Meetings Program is a comprehensive assessment tool for hotel and resort properties that host meetings of any size. The assessment has been designed as a means to providing travel, meeting and conference planners with a hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s level of commitment to environmental issues. As to British Columbia, the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort and Conference Centre received a recent ranking from Canoe.ca as being among the Top Waterfront Hotels in Canada for 2010.

4,268 square feet, while the Crest Hotel boasts over 4,000 square feet of space with on-site audiovisual service. In addition to nearly 2,000 square feet of meeting space, the Coast Prince Rupert Hotel offers discounted priority booking at its affiliate, the 10,000-plussquare-foot North Coast Meeting and Convention Centre. Other Prince Rupert meeting spaces include the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre, with four meeting rooms, and the Lester Centre of the Arts, a 704-seat, state-of-the-art theatre. Both venues are just steps from world-class salmon fishing, as well as from such cultural landmarks as the Museum of Northern British Columbia, the North Pacific Historic Fishing Village and Cannery Museum, and Pike Island, where you can search for petroglyphs as you tour five 10,000-year-old archaeological sites with help from a Tsimshian First Nations guide. Prince George, Northern B.C.’s largest city, includes a number of meeting spaces that reflect the area’s culture. Not only can the Exploration Place Museum and Science Centre seat up to 120 in its galleries, but guests interact with the centre’s hands-on exhibits. Or you can book the Prince George Railway & Forestry Museum’s restored Grand Trunk Pacific Railway car (capacity 14), which served as the Canadian National Railway’s VIP reception centre during Expo 86. Among the more conventional meeting facilities in Prince George: the 40,000-square-foot Prince George Civic Centre, the University of Northern British Columbia (with a full-time staff of professional conference-service providers to help you organize) and two fully equipped meeting rooms at the Prince George Golf & Curling Club. Hotels include the Coast Inn of the North, with over 8,000

Bennett Dam, the Pomeroy Hotel and Conference Centre offers over 11,500 square feet of versatile meeting, conference and event space, easily accommodating up to 600 delegates. The other major meeting facility in town is the Stonebridge Hotel, with more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space in five different rooms. Want to leave urban bustle behind? The Woodlands Inn & Suites in Fort Nelson can accommodate up to 200 in over 2,400 square feet of meeting space. Home to approximately 5,000 residents, the town is a year-round destination that hosts several annual events including the Tetsa River Annual Fishing Derby in summer and Museum Heritage Days and the Canadian Open Sled Dog Championship in winter. Talk about remote: the tiny community of Muncho Lake, nestled at the centre of beautiful Muncho Lake Provincial Park, boasts the largest hotel on the Alaska Highway, the Northern Rockies Lodge. This impressive log building offers three meeting rooms that can hold up to 100 persons. Outdoor adventures include fly-in fishing, wildlife viewing and team-building activities at the lodge’s own outpost cabins. Ą
