Did you exhibit at a tradeshow or speak at a business event in Canada in 2012? If so, your contribution to the economy must be counted and Meeting Professionals International (MPI) is looking for you!
Earlier this summer Meeting Professionals International (MPI) Foundation Canada and its partners announced the launch of the third edition of the Canadian Economic Impact Study of the meetings and events industry (CEIS 3.0).
This research will quantify the number and economic impact of business events that took place in Canada in 2012.
Anyone who spoke at or exhibited at a Canadian event in 2012, is invited to participate in a 10-minute online survey. Respondents need not be a member of MPI. Meeting planners, exhibitors, delegates and Canadian meeting and event venues are also being surveyed in this exhaustive study.
The survey link for speakers and exhibitors to participate in this study is
It is recommended that respondents have information on hand for expenses relating to at least one 2012 event. To view a PDF of the questionnaire, click here. The survey closes October 11.
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.
This is an important endeavour that will enable the Canadian meetings industry to articulate its value to governments, investors and other stakeholders, and help advocate for a favourable business environment.
