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.”

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.”

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
