Meetings, Incentives, Conventions & Events

With the second largest number of head offices in Canada, Alberta has a significant opportunity to grow the number of business meetings held in our province. Travel Alberta develops a broad range of MICE programs and activities that maximize the sales impact on Alberta meetings and incentive destinations. We accomplish this through in-market promotions, industry education and FAM tours with meeting professionals from around the world. Our objective is to provide room night referrals associated with a meeting component and conversion opportunities direct to industry through this multi-faceted strategy.

MICE is a highly competitive channel; the meeting delegate is the highest yield traveller of all tourism channels. Travel Alberta, in collaboration with Business Events Canada (BEC), has developed a broad range of programs and activities to maximize Alberta’s presence and differentiate Alberta from other meeting destinations. This is accomplished through Travel Alberta’s in-market representation, attendance at industry events and marketplaces, continued industry education and site/FAM tours with qualified meeting professionals from our target markets.
