2020 Partnership with Destination Canada's Business Events team
Building value for CESSE members and audiences while promoting the advantages of Canadian-based conventions and business meetings.
The Council of Engineering and Scientific Society Executives (CESSE) and Destination Canada's Business Events team are pleased to announce a joint partnership to build value for CESSE members and audiences while promoting the advantages of Canadian-based conventions and business meetings.
Destination Canada's Business Events team, along with their Canadian destination strategic partners – Tourism Vancouver, Meetings + Conventions Calgary, Business Events Toronto, Ottawa Tourism, Business Events Montréal, and Québec City Convention Centre - is dedicated to the ongoing advancement of education and leadership within the Cleantech, Life Sciences, Advanced Manufacturing, Natural Resources, and Technology sectors.
In Canada, knowledge transfers across businesses to harness emerging technologies. When organizations meet in Canada, they not only experience world-class destinations, state-of-the-art conference facilities, and culturally dynamic events and activities, but they are able to leverage Canada's intellectual capital to create engaging, immersive learning and professional networking experiences for their delegates. Destination Canada's Business Events team leads the way in connecting the educational content of association meetings with the selection of ideal host destinations to create enriching experiences for meeting attendees.
By continuing this strong partnership, Destination Canada's Business Events team and the CESSE membership mutually benefit by exchanging innovative solutions, exploring first-hand the potential advantages of hosting business meetings in destinations that lead Canada's innovation industries.
“Our long-time partnership with Destination Canada's Business Events continues to benefit both CESSE and the societies that our members represent,” said Arlene A. Pietranton, PhD, CAE, Chief Executive Officer of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and chair of the CESSE Board of Directors. “Canada is an engaging backdrop to many successful meetings – and in and of itself is an additional draw for attendees, with its accessibility and unique experiences, from breathtaking natural wonders to welcoming cities with their own unique cultures. Significant contributions to the fields of science and engineering add to Canada's appeal for the society executives who comprise CESSE's membership.”
Virginie De Visscher, Senior Director of Business Development, Economic Sectors, highlighted Destination Canada's Business Events team's reason for engaging with CESSE in this partnership. “Purposeful collaboration is a hallmark of Canadian culture. Our partnership with CESSE provides us with an opportunity to highlight the innovators and industries that are leading Canada's tech revolution. We hope that by shining a spotlight on Canada's industry expertise, members of CESSE are motivated to host and attend professional events in Canada.”
The CESSE partnership with Destination Canada's Business Events team will extend through the 2020 calendar year and features new thought leadership and member access opportunities for the Destination Canada's Business Events team to connect with the CESSE community more deeply than ever before.
The Council of Engineering and Scientific Society Executives (CESSE) is a professional society of chief executive officers and senior-level staff members of scientific and engineering societies dedicated to leadership excellence. CESSE is the go-to source for education, networking, and benchmarking. The organization's greatest resource is its members' wisdom and experience, and the willingness to share that knowledge with colleagues through forums that only CESSE can provide.
