There’s nothing like being there in person to solidify relationships, gain synergy, and be connected to the industry and community you belong to; it’s the one thing I missed most about the last few years.
It’s a lot better when that gathering happens on such a gorgeous day, with great entertainment, good friends, and wonderful treats, including my absolute favourite, PEI Oysters on a half shell provided by Meetings & Conventions PEI.
I don’t know many of the people in these photos cause Vicki didn’t tell me, but I’d love to, so if you know, please tag them in a comment.
And congrats to everyone who helped put together the day, including the sponsors, because I know firsthand how essential they are to industry events like this. Keep them in mind when you’re making event decisions because it’s vital that we support those brands, companies, or people who support us.
