Other ways to get involved in the Delegates Welcome Program:


The Show Your Badge program has been rebranded and relaunched by Discover Halifax.

Delegates simply ‘show their badge’ to participating local businesses to receive their offer. For more information, click here or email Amber Thomas-Johnson.
