We are Discover Halifax.
Discover Halifax is a community-first destination marketing organization dedicated to sharing, promoting, and growing Halifax. We are a non-profit marketing and sales organization in partnership with the Halifax regional government, the Hotel Association of Nova Scotia, and participating industry members. Together, we work collaboratively to make the Halifax region a better place to live, work and visit. Since its inception in 2002, Discover Halifax’s goal is to promote Halifax as a destination of choice for leisure and business travellers.
We want your Halifax event to be the benchmark to which all others are compared. When you attract an event to Halifax, attendees will experience a vibrant city with unique venues, activities, and accommodations. All the things you know and love about our city.
Count on us for customized information you can use to pitch Halifax as your event destination. Our materials focus on hotel space and availability, meeting facilities and support services, dining and entertainment; the city’s accessibility and transportation; and benefits relevant to your organization’s specific needs.
Save time hunting down answers by letting us find the facility options that fit your needs. We can check on space availability in all major hotels, sports facilities, and meeting facilities in the city. If you’d like, we can even issue an RFP to properties on your behalf.
Let us know about the kind of space you’re looking for, and we’ll track down the options and organize inspections. We can suggest itineraries, book appointments with key contacts at each venue, and arrange for transportation.
Using the latest survey and economic data, we can produce an impact analysis of your event through the recognized industry-standard: Destinations International Economic Impact Calculator. Beyond the economic value of your event, our team can help communicate the value to your stakeholders.
Once you’ve locked in your event, we’ll connect you to a network of local suppliers who offer all the products and services you could need. We can also provide you with ideas for social activities, outdoor excursions, entertainment, companion programs, children’s activities, and even pre-and post-event options.
We’d love to help you boost attendance and get your delegates excited! We can create a delegate/event landing page, ideal for announcing conference news and details; promotional videos and image gallery for your use; official Halifax Highlights Visitor Guide to include in delegate kits; letters of welcome from government officials; postcards for overprinting; and use of @meethalifax on Twitter to share updates.
