Travel Alberta’s Trifecta at Tête -a- Tête

By on July 21, 2014

As you can imagine, reputable industry events such as Tête -a- Tête lay the groundwork for industry suppliers to host their own networking events before, after, and during the event what with 471 exhibitors and 525 planners being in the same city and all. One exhibitor that took advantage of this opportunity is Travel Alberta. The province’s pre, post and during deliveries were all impressive, and yours truly was along for the ride!

The Travel Alberta experience was threefold; not only did they host an impressive space on the tradeshow floor, they also coordinated a unique and exclusive client event on the eve of Tête-a-Tête. The Province welcomed participants to “A Tour through Italy”, held at DiVino Wine Studio in the Italian quarter of Ottawa.

Not only are they one of the most fun loving teams I have had the pleasure of joining, Travel Alberta has great taste! They delighted guests with a wine and food pairing that celebrated 20 regions in Italy while representatives from the various regions in Alberta shared new, exciting and celebratory news.  Among the announcements, was the start of the Rogers Place construction, a multi-use indoor arena  in Edmonton, scheduled for completion in 2016. In addition to the arena, is the newly offered direct flight from Red Deer to Ottawa. Calgary’s airport is currently undergoing a $2.1 Billion expansion set to be complete in 2015 which includes the construction of a new International Terminal, which will double the airport’s size, adding 22 aircraft gates. This dinner showed the team’s ability to mix work and play while addressing real and timely issues.

In addition to the best Tiramisu ever, the crew also treated clients to a post tradeshow spa party complete with makeup artists and massages. Guests left feeling pampered and ready for the big night ahead with MPI. A big thank you to the Alberta team!
