Dear MMBC Coalition Supporters,
As Provinces and Territories slowly begin to reopen, businesses that rely on the Business Meetings and Events industry need a clear reopening plan to ensure they can weather the impacts of COVID-19. Meetings Mean Business Canada has launched a new letter-writing campaign targeting Members of Provincial Parliaments across Canada. By using Push Politics, we have a platform that makes it easy for you to send the message directly to your MPP, MLA, MNA or MHA that:
Business Meetings and Events must not be grouped under mass gatherings and that;
Governments must fast-track the reopening of the Business Meetings and Events Sector by working with our industry leaders now.
Meetings Mean Business Canada is an industry-wide, coast-to-coast-to-coast coalition which is the voice of 229,000 Canadians who rely on Business Events to create jobs and opportunities for them and their families. Sending a letter is simple and takes 30 seconds. Please visit www.tourismcounts.ca/meetagain and click “Send Your Letter” to ask your MPP, MLA, MNA, or MHA to take immediate action by supporting this sector and saving the businesses and jobs in your community that rely on Business Meetings and Events. I am asking that as business leaders, you also encourage your staff, suppliers and extended network to send a letter and to share this initiative on your corporate and personal social media channels – we all need to come together as one industry to ensure our voice is heard loud and clear! Additionally, the Tourism Industry Association of Canada (TIAC) has launched an in-depth industry survey that will cover the use of government support programs to obtain much-needed data for government in order to address support for the visitor economy. Please take the survey now. To be clear, to ensure the survival of this industry, bold measures are needed now – within days, not weeks or months. We collectively need to activate our sector and all those that rely on Business Meetings and Events to pressure the government for immediate action.
