The start of a new year is always an invigorating time, and this year, Team Richmond is hard at work planning for a robust and busy sales calendar. Time flies and we are already into a new decade! The Sales team has been hard at work planning and preparing for a very robust travel schedule in the New Year.  We are also thrilled to have a new business development team member Judy Frankel join our team. Judy joined our organization in November and is hard at work digging into the work that is at hand.

To date, we are working on re-establishing our relationships with Third Party and Meeting Planners, building new connections and contacts achieved via a robust trade show schedule and deepening our relationship with Connect 7 to build out a vibrant calendar of conferences and trade shows to engage with our key audience.

January kicks off the calendar with Go West in Edmonton on Jan 19-21 and with CSAE, Tête-à-Tête in Ottawa on January 29th. Tourism Richmond will also be adding the Reveal social event, billed as the preeminent place to connect with industry peers prior to Tête-à-Tête to our 2020 sponsorships.

Once again, we are working with the capable team from Connect 7 to help activate our booth as they had last year. Once again, we will be employing a Lunar New Year theme and have an exciting prize component to help attract key clients to our booth.

We will have many of our RHDA colleagues alongside us as we venture out into the tradeshows.  We are thrilled to have such a collaborative and enthusiastic team as we work to bring meetings and conferences to our destination.  If you are interested in learning more, please feel free to reach out to Judy Frankel jfrankel@tourismrichmond.com directly.
