“During May the Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) - Pacific Region, which is part of the National Research Council of Canada, Our group really enjoyed our Annual Regional Meeting on the Sunshine Coast. The group, about 60 in total, gathered in the lovely Seaside Centre for their meetings and enjoyed the hospitality of two hotels in the region (Driftwood Inn and Bella Beach Inn). The participants had an opportunity to visit some industry sites as well as take in the many beautiful tourist sites the Sunshine Coast offers, including activities such as golfing, hiking, kayaking and shopping. The motivation for meeting on the Sunshine Coast was to gain a better appreciation for the business and economic development potential of the area. This was the first visit for many to the Sunshine Coast who all indicated a strong interest to return for an extended vacation. We left extremely impressed and thrilled – it was a very successful meeting.”

“My team matters. Without them we could never achieve our goals. I expect them to work hard all year long, and when they do, I reward them by bringing them here to the Sunshine Coast, where we play hard!”

“The Sunshine Coast is an incredible, incredible place for mountain biking, and many riders (2010 BC Bike Race) finished the Sunshine Coast race stages in awe of the dedicated volunteers who have created and who maintain such a beautiful trail network. Certainly it's a good investment for Sunshine Coast Tourism to promote more riders visiting this area - this is a demography with resources to spend in restaurants, hotels, etc..  As it stands, I can say for sure that the 500 riders from 21 countries in the BC Bike Race went home raving about their experience here.”

“Our delegates from Squamish, Maple Ridge, Chilliwack, and Vancouver Island are still talking about what a fantastic meeting that was held in Powell River. The Meet and Greet on the first evening was so interesting, convenient and team-building oriented, that it will be written into the agenda of every future meeting.”
