Annual Conference Reaches Record Attendance

The 38th BCCPA Annual Conference has just reached a record high number of delegate registrations. Over 400 BCCPA members and industry stakeholders are registered to attend the three day conference taking place in Whistler from May 24-26. Registration deadline is May 13th. Be sure to register today as this is a conference you won’t want to miss!

This year’s record attendance comes on the heels of a sold out conference in 2014. Thanks to a new Monday “Club Care” format, we’ve been able to accommodate more delegates in 2015.

“Watching the delegate numbers climb beyond 400 over the past few months has been very rewarding,” says Daniel Fontaine, CEO. “Not only is this the largest conference of its kind west of Toronto, we’re also very proud that it has attracted such a high calibre of speakers and panelists.”
