The BizBash 250: Introducing 2021's Must-Know Event Pros in Canada

Updated: Dec 23, 2021

We are excited to share the news that our Founder and President has been named one of Canada's most influential event professionals. In its third edition, this year’s feature focuses on the meeting and event industry’s trailblazers, trendsetters and rising stars. The influential executives, board members and department heads featured helm some of the nation’s top events (think massive trade shows, philanthropic galas, sold-out conferences, big corporate bashes, pop-culture conventions and festivals, live music productions, sporting events, branded experiences and multimillion-dollar weddings—just to scratch the surface), while others continue to innovate with steal-worthy food and beverage concepts, state-of-the-art event technology, cutting-edge design, out-of-the-box entertainment and noteworthy strategies that benefit the entire industry. In a diverse and growing profession that’s chock-full of list-worthy creatives, it’s important to note that the industry’s talents are not restricted to these pages—rather, this annual compilation is meant to offer new opportunities to connect with key players to share ideas, inspiration and guidance for future events.
