The BC Chapter of MPI celebrated this month at Waterview. A large group of influential players in the meeting and events industry from around the province gathered to recognize and celebrate excellence in their industry.
View through the floor to ceiling windows of Waterview, the hustle and bustle of the busy waterfront provided the perfect aquatic backdrop for the Cruisin’ into Summer event theme. Soaring seaside views and modern décor were a perfect pairing for a spectacular soiree. A venue full of professional meeting and event planners are a discerning group, so we were thrilled to have a room full of happy guests.

A nautically chic palette of ocean blue, white and classic red for the décor was high on charm. Sleek lounge furniture was arranged to encourage mingling and socializing in comfort.
