Having watched our entertainment (Folklorama based) some said they would like to come back just to experience this festival. Winnipeg seems to be all grown-up now and ready to roll!! It truly is one great city!!"
-Angie Boehm, Canadian Administrators of Volunteer Resources
As a former Winnipegger, it was very exciting for me to attend the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada's festival in Winnipeg. It's very clear that in recent years Winnipeg has rediscovered and embraced its tradition of achievement in architecture and design, and has focused this energy wisely into transformative projects in many parts of the city.While the festival was mainly a national event for the professional community, the imagination and creativity that defined the public events came from Winnipeg architects. Playing golf in downtown alleys at midnight with tennis balls was a truly "only in Winnipeg" moment, and the closing party, Table for 1200, showed the city at its best -- fun, unpretentious, smart and sexy. The RAIC will be looking closely at the week's events as we think about defining future events across the country. One thing is clear to us: Winnipeg's influence will be felt."
- Allan Teramura, Regional director, Ontario North, East and Nunavut, Royal Architectural Institute of Canada

Winnipeg is setting the bar higher."
- Jane Townsley, President, International Association of Women Police

"One of the major benefits for myself and for Can-Do to hold the conference here in Winnipeg is it’s the center of Canada. This way, everybody has the same amount of distance, pretty much, to travel in order to get to Winnipeg. There’ s a major benefit to having any conference here in Winnipeg strictly because of our location and our Aboriginal population. They (delegates) love how close we are to a lot of the Aboriginal communities. We’re less than hour away from a number of Aboriginal communities that people could drive to if they wanted to."
