MEETINGS ABOVE 60˚ ARE SPECTACULAR IN CANADA'S NORTHWEST TERRITORIES
A land of extremes, where summer sun just won’t quit and winter skies dance in magical ribbons of colour. It may be the biggest little city in Canada, but it’s the hardy people who make Yellowknife conferences shine. Planners lean into this raw landscape where First Nation cultural experiences, team building fishing tournaments, and networking beneath the Northern Lights transforms meetings into memorable experiences. It’s different meeting north of 60˚ — that’s the whole appeal.

It’s a fact. Event dollars go further in Canada. With the Canadian dollar hovering between 25 and 30% below the U.S. dollar, planners are encouraged to enhance their meeting experience here. Dollars saved on the program requirements can translate into more bells and whistles or your bottom line, you pick.

I think Yellowknife is a new and hidden jewel for other conventions and with your work and the opening up of more hotels and convention facilities Yellowknife will become an important city for other groups to consider when planning a convention. The city has so much to offer.
