Halifax as Host

Filed under: downeast news — 4:55 pm

I’ve spent the last 2 days pitching downeast destination management’s conference services to a number of associations and organizations who have recently chosen Halifax to host their conferences.  In all of these particular instances local individuals pushed to bring the conferences to Halifax. It is incredible when people really get behind their city and make something great happen- like a conference for 800 people. We have some fantastic advocates bringing business  to our city. If you know someone who has done an extrodinary job consider nominating them for the Destination Halifax Ambassador Club .

Last week the ddm team helped bring together 180 winners of the Alexander Keith’s 214th Birthday contest in Halifax for 2 action packed days of celebrating. From on-line registration, to booking flights, and providing the client with a team of hospitable program managers, we had a great time!
