Other ways to get involved in the Delegates Welcome Program:


The Show Your Badge program has been rebranded and relaunched by Discover Halifax. The program is a delegate appreciation program where participating businesses provide special offers to visiting conference delegates. Delegates simply ‘show their badge’ to participating local businesses to receive their offer. For more information, click here or email Shannon Platt.  



The Savour the City Program is a new program created by Discover Halifax and RANS. It is a delegate appreciation program for major conferences only. Participating restaurants will provide special menus exclusively for delegates. Delegates will receive the special menus just by showing their badge or card.
