After well over a year of restrictions and barriers to travel — not to mention constantly shielding ourselves from COVID-19 behind masks and Zoom calls — the longest shared border in the world between Canada and the US is now open. But what, exactly, does this mean when it comes to the return of events? And now that the world is opening up again, are we ready? 


Join Destination Canada and its partners for an insightful and thoughtful discussion on the future delegate journey. In addition to hearing unique perspectives about the next generation of business events, you will also discover some of the innovative measures that are being put in place to reassure delegates and organizers as they return to face-to-face meetings — ranging from health to financial and contractual safety.
