Recently, Professional Events and Consulting was contracted to work with client Honorable Order of the Blue Goose International (HOBGI) to handle meeting management logistics abroad in Calgary, AB Canada. PEC successfully used their background knowledge and experience to plan the three day convention for HOBGI attendees. Doing business internationally brings forth a whole new set of challenges; among these challenges are a difference in culture and communication practices, new and unknown city scapes and geography, and unfamiliarity with resources, suppliers, and vendors in the area.
With detail-oriented and careful planning, PEC pulled together the convention with ease in late July, which not only included meetings and nightly events, but also included daily side tours for convention attendee’s spouses and children. PEC owners Cheryl and Denice traveled from Milwaukee, WI to Calgary to manage on-site logistics for HOBGI’s annual convention. Below is a photo summary of the convention, spanning from daily meetings to nightly events to the closing gala.
