We connect great people at great events.

At Big Picture Conferences (BPC), we believe connection gives people meaning and purpose in their lives. We love to make connections happen by creating the events you love to attend. We are dedicated to the production of annual conferences and networking events for the Canadian hospitality industry. BPC delivers “turnkey” events by developing program content, organizing quality speakers, and coordinating marketing services while managing venue arrangements, registrations, sponsorship sales and finances.
