IMPORTANT Message to the BC Meetings & Event Industry

Dear Friends:

2022 going to be a year of transition as our province starts to reopen to the world. We recognize that the last year and half has been tough for many, but we remain hopeful that the tourism and events industry will continue to grow and remain strong as the year progresses.

The reality is that many have experienced disruptions, loss and transition over the last year. These changes can be both exhilarating and terrifying. One moment you find yourself ecstatic and excited for the future - ready to move forward and get on with life. And then the next moment, you've dropped to the floor, exhausted and crying. You're doubting your decisions and the world is constantly changing with hurdles popping up like the marmots in Whistler. This is normal and to be expected. 

We are here for you and we are committed to providing the most current and relevant information regarding COVID-19 to our members. We are here is anyone has questions, concerns, or ideas on how we can best serve you. As we all work through immediate needs and challenges, do not hesitate to reach out for help in any way shape or form.

We have remained strong as a chapter and look forward to collaborating with our other local associations (MPI, PCMA, FVEPA) to support all of those in the event industry. We are exited at the year ahead look forward to offer opportunities to keep our community connected.
