Team Halifax showcases Halifax Love @ CMEE 2023

Team Halifax headed to Toronto to showcase our city

The Canadian Meetings & Events Expo (CMEE) is an annual tradeshow that attracts hundreds of event planners from across Canada and beyond who are looking for destinations and suppliers for their upcoming meetings, conventions, or events. Every major Canadian city was there displaying the best they have to offer.

Over the 2-day event, our booth welcomed hundreds of visitors, many of which were event planners who were considering Halifax for an upcoming event.

This year, Discover Halifax was joined by the Halifax Convention Centre and 7-hotel partners, who helped us showcase our city, including:

United in our strategy, ‘Team Halifax’ showed attendees some Halifax LOVE. We mixed cocktails, asked engaging questions, and invited them to bring their delegation to our beautiful city.

It was important to us that we featured Nova Scotia producers, as they are part of Halifax’s unique offering. Our delegate gift included handmade charcuterie spoons from Kiln Art in Chester. These were the talk of the event. A little piece of Halifax, made with love, for delegates to bring home. We also worked with The Clever Barkeep to design a signature cocktail and mocktail for booth visitors that featured Benajmin Bridge’s NV Brut, Bulwark’s Non-Alcoholic Cider, and Haskap Highland Orchards HASKAPUR juice. These tart spritzer drinks were a welcome treat for attendees.

This is the third and final year for our Halifax LOVE creative, which has received high praise by CMEE attendees. Next year we’ll be back at CMEE with a fresh look and feel that continues to showcase Halifax as a premier destination for those planning meetings and conventions, so stay tuned!
