Vancouver’s meetings and conventions industry supports more than 6,000 jobs and results in over $500m annually in spin-off benefits for the Vancouver economy.
“This is the largest ever convention-related CSR programme that the Vancouver community has benefited from. We feel it’s important that Vancouverites know when conferences leave important legacies in Vancouver,” added Leung.
