We are pleased to announce that the online questionnaire is NOW OPEN and you can participate by clicking here. Please submit your responses and spread the word to your industry colleagues!
The study is supported by Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Foundation, the MPI Foundation of Canada and its partners, and will quantify the number and economic impact of business events that took place in Canada in 2012.
Anyone (regardless of your home country) that organized a business event anywhere in Canada in 2012 is invited to participate. You do not need to be a member of MPI, or be a “professional” meeting planner.
We do recommend that respondents have their 2012 year-end results on hand to help streamline the process. To view the PDF version of the questionnaire to help you prepare, click here.
The MPI Foundation awarded this landmark research project earlier this year to the consortium headed by Maritz Canada, along with The Conference Board of Canada, the Canadian Tourism Human Resource Council and Greenfield Services Inc.
Why is this important? It will enable the Canadian meetings industry to articulate its value to governments, investors and other stakeholders, and will help advocate for a favourable business environment.
Stay tuned on Twitter for updated by following the #MPICEIS hashtag. Should you have questions regarding the study, please do not hesitate to contact Doreen Ashton Wagner, by email or by calling 866-488-4474 ext. 4512.
Thank you in advance for your support in this research to benefit the entire industry in Canada!
