5 Future Jobs – Do you Agree?

Filed under: downeast news — 5:54 pm

“Meeting professionals can’t afford to leave anything out of the imagination. We hope these jobs intrigue and incite you to think more about your industry and how it’s growing. The only people who stay in the same place forever are dead. And this industry is anything but dead.”

I just read this article in Meeting Professionals International. Do you agree with the possibilities? Let me know.

Over the past 5 years I have had the pleasure to work with downeast destination management with great success.  Our Alexander Keith’s birthday event in Halifax has become an annual favourite of Keith’s fans from all over the country.  The team at ddm is always enthusiastic to work with us and their operations team ensures we have smooth transfers, and their support of our on-site events makes everything look flawless. From web registration, travel bookings, on-site check-in, decor support, budget management transportation operations and on-site event staff, they have become a wonderful partner for us in our Alexander Keith’s celebrations! Slainte!

Nova Centre

Filed under: downeast news — 1:30 pm

As someone who works for a company that depends on the development of our city I see Halifax compete for association and corporate conference business very regularly against other destinations around the world. We are continually coming up against some of the most cultural and urbane cities. Moving forward on the Nova Centre development will enable us to achieve better positioning. There are many local industries and companies who are built on Halifax succeeding as a destination of choice, I encourage them to speak up and help push this project forward. A well thought out, new development such as the Nova Centre will certainly put Halifax at the top of the global convention map.
