2019 Canadian Credit Union Association
“Our National Conference for Canada’s Credit Unions is the largest Canadian Conference and Tradeshow for Credit Union Members, attracting leadership teams and their board of directors. We selected Winnipeg as the RBC Convention Centre because it is superbly structured for large scale events. We enjoyed 80,000 sq. ft. of space to host our complex and multi-faceted event program. Winnipeg offered our association the ability to be the central hub for all provinces to meet. Our delegates travel across Canada and Winnipeg’s location made it ideal for visitors from coast to coast to come together.”
Suzanne Burnie, Senior Manager, Conferences and Events
2018 FCA International Convergence
"The Conference was right smack dab in the middle of two major Winnipeg White Out street parties right next door at the Bell MTS Place. It actually added a dimension of interest to our 350 international delegates to be so close to the action. I had the distinct sense that most if not all of our international delegates would be very happy to return to Winnipeg again at the earliest possibility as they had a very positive experience."
Roger Armbruster, Organizer
Crane Rental Association of Canada 2018 Annual Convention
"Winnipeg completely won the heart of our delegates. Our members have fallen in love with Winnipeg and many of them have already said they will be back with their entire family. This conference was a work of art and will remain in my memory as one of the best local teams I have ever had the pleasure of working with!"
Claire Belanger-Parker, Event Planner
Canadian Association of Gift Planners, 2018 CAGP National Conference
"By all accounts, this was a tremendously successful conference and we have received outstanding feedback on the quality of the program content and networking events. We had a strong, sold out attendance of 300 delegates, and we are particularly thrilled to note that this included many first time delegates and potential new members."

Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, 2017 CAPD/ACDP Meeting
“The Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Annual Conference, held at the Fort Garry Hotel, Spa and Conference Centre in Winnipeg, turned into one of the most successful ever, due to the quality of the speakers on the agenda and the location.
Winnipeg proved itself to be a very welcoming city. An impromptu pre-event dinner at Peasant Cookery raised awareness of the taste and quality of the food, as well as the variety of restaurants in the Exchange District in general, while the formal Executive Committee dinner at the Manitoba Club was more than impressive. The Conference Welcome Reception at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights was one of the conference highlights. And through it all there were smiles and a customer service ethic that made all our members and guests feel like VIPs. We are certain that great memories of the event in Winnipeg will remain with our members.”
Steve Gillick, Director of Operations
Global Forum 2017
"The Global Forum 2017 in Winnipeg was a complete success with more than 220 registered participants coming from 20 countries. The debates and exchanges that occurred during the panels were all high-level, with in-depth insights and various point of views expressed in a friendly atmosphere as well as networking among participants and companies from diverse sectors...The Global Forum 2017 in Winnipeg set the bar high for the first Canadian edition. The social events at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and Assiniboine Park Zoo also impressed the participants.”
Sébastien Lévy, Vice-President Global Forum
Institute of Advanced Financial Planners, 2017 IAFP Symposium
“Our conference went very well in Winnipeg; it was a good location for many of the delegates to attend. We have never held the Symposium in Winnipeg as we usually go east one year and west the next year. We were pleasantly surprised with the response and attendance, as we were full and had to cut off the registration because we could not fit any additional attendees.
Because of the success, I am sure the IAFP will consider holding our Symposium in Winnipeg again in the future.”
Debbie Hartloff, Symposium Event Coordinator
Peguis First Nation
"Manitoba is an awesome province, and Winnipeg is an awesome city. We have had huge success hosting events in Winnipeg, including one of the largest North American Indigenous Games in history. We take pride in being great hosts to those who visit our house, our community, our regional territory, our province. When we host big events, we put on a big show. Elders from across Canada can attest to that."
