I would recommend the downeast team, in a heart beat!

Filed under: Testimonials — 5:13 pm

Upon recommendation by the Westin Nova Scotian Sales team, I acquired the services of downeast destination management for help with our 6th Annual Scientific Conference, taking place in Halifax in May 2010. Working from Guelph, having ddm in Halifax, with connections across the city, became invaluable. Originally contracted to help us run a Geo Caching Team Building Event, they became my go-to for all things local and ended up sourcing a sign printer, a glassware provider, a dinner cruise and a delegate bag giveaway, not to mention offering some excellent sightseeing advice for our participants. Having ddm in Halifax made my life as conference organizer MUCH less stressful and most definitely added to the flow and success of our event! I would recommend the downeast team, in a heart beat!

Scouting unique venues

Filed under: downeast news — 11:40 am

Citadel Hill 025It is always great to discover a unique venue. We love being able to offer our clients something really interesting and completely outside the box. Last week Claudia and I went into the ditch surrounding Citadel Hill. Prior to this field trip I must admit I was sceptical. Turns out it is fantastic, and, a perfect fit. What a great discovery and an excellent starting point for what will surely be an incredible event experience for those in attendance.

Inspired by the Brier

Filed under: Events — 10:18 am

Halifax and the WTCC played host to the Brier last week. As a result we were feeling inspired and discovered that curling is a lot of fun.

As an added treat we had the Women’s World Champions Nancy Delahunt, Mary- Anne Arsenault, and Jennifer Baxter giving us tools and tips for playing the game!

Our first experience working with downeast destination management was nothing short of excellent.

“Our first experience working with downeast destination management was nothing short of excellent.  Finding new ideas for office events can become a challenge, however from the first contact with downeast their staff, especially Jenny Hasselman, was next to none.  We truly had very little to do but show up and enjoy.  The staff at downeast just needed to know the number of guests and from that point on handled every last detail.  Staff were professional and courteous and we look forward to future events with downeast.  Many thanks to Jenny and her team.”

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.
