As an event manager who is ever cognisant of the uber importance of marketing and being in the know regarding trends and what  the public and  therefore our clients consider to be current, I consider this Trendwatching article a must read.

Halifax hosts Canspep- ddm sponsors dine-around

Filed under: downeast news — 1:48 pm

This years’ Canadian Society of Special Event Planners Conference is in Halifax. What a terrific opportunity for us to showcase our fabulous, friendly city. Last night Claudia and I played host to all Event Planners at a Dine Around in some of Halifax’s most notable restaurants. Participants were treated to a very creative presentation of invitation and downeast style restaurant trivia. The winning team received bottles of Nova Scotian wine compliments of ddm.

“skip the bothersome RFP process and simply hire downeast”

Filed under: Testimonials — 2:48 pm

“Working with downeast was not only a pleasure, but I could not have produced such a flawless national conference and trade show without their incredible guidance, support and expertise. Their staff are super stars and I tell all my colleagues to skip the bothersome RFP process and simply hire downeast for transportation, companion program, entertainment, décor, transfers etc. Jenny Hasselman was incredible and became a part of my team and went above and beyond to help wherever needed. I highly recommend downeast destination management.”
