NANAIMO CHAMBER WELCOMES NEW HOTEL WITH MAJOR BOOKING REQUEST
The Nanaimo Chamber has welcomed the confirmation of the Gordon Street Marriott Conference Hotel with a challenge to help host the 2021 Canadian Chamber of Conference Executive & Policy Convention — a first for Nanaimo.
The Conference is scheduled to visit the western provinces of Canada every three years. In a preliminary discussion between BC Chambers at their conference last fall, Nanaimo was the only BC Chamber to express interest. The Canadian Chamber invited a formal ”Bid 2021 Application”. That has been accepted in Ottawa and further discussions and considerations will continue to June 30, 2019.
The annual Canadian Chamber event attracts 500 plus delegates and their spouses. It would not be possible to submit a bid without the projected completion of the Marriott Courtyard hotel in time. Other accommodations will also be required throughout downtown. The event is estimated to have an economic impact on Nanaimo of just under $1 million.
