Toronto’s meetings and events sector honoured with key industry award

In recognition of the city’s exemplary leadership and spirit of partnership, Tourism Toronto and the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) have been honoured with the Professional Conference Management Association’s (PCMA) 2009 Chairman’s Award.

Each year since 1986, PCMA's Chairman's Award has honoured an individual or organisation that has made a difference in the meetings and convention industry or has contributed in a constructive way to setting a course that will positively affect the travel industry. The recipient is selected by the PCMA Chairman of the Board.

“We are pleased to be recognised as leaders and world-class collaborators,” said Barry Smith, president and chief executive of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. “We’re proud of our partnership with the PCMA and our positive impact on what the association is able to deliver to our peers in the industry.”

This year, Toronto was ranked the number one convention city in Canada by top North America meeting planners, and one of the top five in all of North America – Watkins Research Grou, 2008 Meeting and Convention Planners Survey.

“We recognise the value that a strong conventions industry brings to our community,” said David Whitaker, president and chief executive of Tourism Toronto. “We’ve worked hard to develop partnerships that build and maintain support for this sector and we appreciate receiving acknowledgment for our efforts from our PCMA friends.”
