As we look back on 2021, we will do so with pride and a sense of confidence that we fostered the right partnerships, maintained a strong focus on our business and engaged with our amazing community and partners to secure a bright future.

This year brought us new challenges, but more importantly, opportunities to welcome our local community into our space, ensuring important conversations and community celebrations could continue. We hosted thousands of delegates from our region and connected to others from around the world, embracing the benefit of technology when meeting in-person was not possible. We brought together our industry and partners to create new, unique ways to stay connected and create vibrancy for Halifax and Nova Scotia, reinforcing the value of events in bringing us together.

We also learned a lot about our clients, community and partners. We experienced the energy and pent-up excitement as we all got back out to events and activities, feeling the connection of being together once again. Our local pride of place can be felt throughout our streets and our spaces, whether we’re hosting each other or visitors from away. It’s what makes us authentic Nova Scotian hosts.

We felt the commitment of our clients to host their events in our venue and our city and their eagerness to get back to what they do best. Together, we navigated through change and stayed focused on the future, securing and planning a diverse mix of events that will attract visitors and drive impact for years to come.

There is a renewed sense of vibrancy in Nova Scotia, an energy that is felt through the amazing events and experiences we create together, continuing to make our province the best place to live, work and connect.
