Event Operations

  • Webcasting 101

    Webcasting is an increasingly important communications medium for the event planner. Webcasting does not replace traditional events. The technology is meant to extend the reach and participation of an event, no matter their geographic location or availability. Webcasting also offers features that traditional meetings do not have.

  • Checking off site inspection concerns

    A site inspection is a critical part of event planning and audiovisual design. Armed with pen, paper and a digital camera, you are prepared for your site inspection.

  • Canada’s convention centres are sustaining sustainability

    Sustainability has become a huge issue in many areas these days and that is particularly true in the meetings industry. Here in Canada, there is not a single major convention centre that not only has an array of green operating practices in place but a selection of green meetings options available to clients who are organizing events in their facilities.

  • Green with envy

    Canadian convention centers are winning top marks and major awards when it comes to adopting environmentally friendly initiatives. Taking the lead from Europe, meeting facilities have been green long before the recent wave of eco-consciousness hit the marketplace.

  • Projection screen selection

    The type of projection screen system that is best suited for meetings and conferences is determined by the venue, budget and most importantly, the goals of the event.

  • A full house

    Picture yourself with options as to where you should hold your next meeting or event; you have in front of you a brochure for a great facility in a major downtown city in Canada, it’s a hotel that offers a fairly large space for your attending delegates, good food, and reasonable prices for their rooms; now look at the brochure beside it for a casino in a major city in Canada.
