Delegates Welcome Program

Downtown Halifax Business Commission, Halifax Convention Centre, Discover Halifax and Halifax Stanfield International Airport have joined together to form the Delegates Welcome Program. The goal of this program is to communicate upcoming conferences and events to businesses and members, so together we can give conference delegates and event participants a consistent and memorable welcome experience.

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 Amber Thomas-Johnson.
