Prince Edward Island boasts a 10 – 15% higher delegate registration than other Canadian Provinces. Our testimonials will tell you that Prince Edward Island conferences are not to be missed. Delegates and planners alike tell us their meeting on the Island was their best ever, often returning home feeling relaxed and refreshed: some even make plans to extend their stay on PEI by joining us early before their conference or extending their stay afterward. Either way, they are often planning their next trip to PEI before even saying goodbye.
“Your staff at Meetings and Conventions PEI along with your suppliers and partners created an amazing experience for CanSPEP delegates! It was one of the most seamless conferences that I have attended that incorporated the sites and places of the destination letting us get a unique taste of what they have to offer. Your team worked hard, were gracious, fun and extremely hospitable. I look forward to having the opportunity to bring a client your way.
Thank you again for truly showcasing PEI hospitality.

Behind the Scenes Conference Planning
“This is the first time the Buddhist community has ever worked with the local community. We’ve had retreats and events the past two years and we’ve always used our own buses, used our own drivers and worked with our own volunteers.This year is the first year where we’re reaching out to Tourism P.E.I., reaching out to Meetings and Conventions P.E.I. and all these people. The amount of support and help we’ve received from them is incredible.’’

It was a pleasure to host the Association of Canadian Pension Management’s National Conference at the Delta Prince Edward last month. You and your team (at Meetings & Conventions PEI) have been a lifeline throughout the planning stages of this event, and I know I couldn’t have pulled this off without your support.
There is no doubt that Island hospitality is as unique as it is wonderful. Our delegates had a wonderful experience from start to finish, and for many who were visiting the Island for the first time, it will no doubt be unforgettable. I know PEI holds a special place in my heart.

Michelle McAulay from Meeting and Conventions PEI sat down with Donna Humphrey the organizer of the Canadian Society of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery (CSOHNS) National meeting. Held this year on PEI. Donna commented on everything from the great space at the Delta Prince Edward to airlift at the Charlottetown Airport.
“It took an hour and a half from Toronto to get here, so easy-peasy”
An all around great testimonial of PEI as a meeting destination. CSOHNS National meeting was held on PEI earlier this summer.

“Meetings and Convention PEI were extremely useful in helping us plan two conferences that PEITF hosted this year. They helped us coordinate every aspect of our conferences from finding a site, entertainment and providing information to our delegates. They went out of their way to make our work easier. Their assistance was invaluable in the success of our conferences.”
