Advisory Council

Up until 2006 the Western Canadian chapters of Meeting Professionals International hosted an annual conference called GO WEST. This conference was well-received and traveled between Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. Due to the demand on volunteer hours the conference did not continue and was a loss for Canadian event professionals.

Building upon that legacy, we are thrilled to see GO WEST coming to fruition once again. GO WEST 2018 is being produced by the team at Timewise Event Management Inc. An Advisory Council has been formed to provide input on setting the program and direction.

The following individuals have graciously contributed their time on our Advisory Council to help us ensure the success of GO WEST 2018.
