Virtual tour for Vanessa at Business Events Canada

Hi Vanessa,

I hope this curated virtual tour will give you some great insight into what BEC's International clients can
expect when hosting conferences and events in Winnipeg. Winnipeg is a
city where arts and culture are celebrated on every corner; a city whose
multiculturalism shines bright; a city with award-winning culinary creations, a
thriving urban scene, and some of the country’s most unique and
world-class attractions. I hope you will enjoy the next 20 minutes in the Peg!

Your Customized Tour of Winnipeg

Your Arrival - YWG Airport

From the moment you land to the instant you depart, Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport is committed to providing an excellent experience for all delegates. Allow Scott Marohn, Director of Air Service and Product Development, to show you around the airport and inform you of all of the wonderful services they can offer.

Welcome to Winnipeg

With world-class attractions, a rave-worthy culinary scene, a legendary arts community that always takes centre stage, and an economy that keeps on growing, Winnipeg has gone from being simply the centre of the continent, to the centre of attention. But you don't have to take our word for it, take a listen to what Winnipeg's mayor, Brian Bowman, has to say.

Let's Explore Winnipeg - City Tour

Did you know that Winnipeg has more than 6,000 years of history and is a city that speaks over 100 languages? We are a four-season destination with a cosmopolitan flair and warm, welcoming spirit. Our Winnipeg colleagues and partners are excited to take you on a whirlwind tour of the city.

RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg

As Canada's fourth largest publicly owned convention centre, Winnipeg's premiere event facility houses 264,000 sq.ft. of unique and distinct meeting rooms that offer you unparalleled flexibility. Patrick Hauta, Sales Manager at the RBC Convention Centre, will take you through the stunning spaces you can expect to find at the convention centre.

Meeting Hub: Downtown Hotels & District

Winnipeg's downtown is a hub of activity, boasting a vibrant Sports, Hospitality, and Entertainment District (SHED), the RBC Convention Centre, over 1900 hotel rooms, as well as a multitude of restaurants and attractions. Tourism Winnipeg's own Grace Hicks is excited to show you what makes our downtown the ideal spot to host your meeting.

Meeting Hub: St. James Conference & Hotel District

This area is brimming with everything that convention centre delegates are looking for, be it dining, breweries and distilleries, five-star attractions, to the best shopping in central Canada. It is also just ten minutes from downtown and a five-minute drive to the Winnipeg Richardson International Airport. Tourism Winnipeg's own Grace Hicks will give you a run-down of what you can find in the St. James District.

Victoria Inn Hotel & Convention Centre

The Victoria Inn Hotel & Convention Centre is Manitoba's largest convention hotel and the epicentre of the city's St. James Conference and Hotel District, as well as being located conveniently by the James A. Richardson International Airport. Known for their superior customer service, their team of event professionals has the experience, resources, and creativity to help you host an unforgettable event. Let Sonny Palermo, General Manager, take you on a site tour of the facility.

Thanks again Vanessa for taking the time to connect with me today! I always appreciate our time together.  

The first phase of this project was to showcase an overview of arrival to Winnipeg, a warm welcome from our Mayor, highlights of our two meeting hubs, and exploring Winnipeg through city tours. These seven videos are built with a special website module which our team
generates a customized webpage with curated content for the client. The webpage has the ability to insert their logo, a customized message, helpful links, as well as choosing between some or all of our seven videos, along with what order they appear in. Phase 2 of this project is in the works and once the videos are available, I will share them with you.  If any of your clients can benefit from these videos and this type of presentation, please let me know and I will ensure to include the link with our Winnipeg bid book. 

If you require any additional information, please don't hesitate to reach out at any time. 

All the best,

Grace Hicks
