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 owns and operates hotel investment conferences. Over the last 10 years, we have been approached by associations/corporations to act as a third party planner to produce member/community conferences. We take care of everything, delivering “turnkey” events by developing program content, organizing quality speakers, and coordinating marketing services while managing venue arrangements, registrations, sponsorship sales and finances. From lights and mics to ordering the chicken and fish, we love our work,  acting as “friendly administrators” who get stuff done.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

We asked a few industry legends & prominent Canadian Hotel Families to take a personal trip down memory lane and answer a couple of questions.
Enjoy these stories!
  • The Canadian Tourism Marketing Summit provided a perfect balance of information, inspiration and access to thought leaders who are driving change in our industry.
    Cree LawsonFounder & CEO, Arrivalist
  • As an international investor with limited experience in Canada, CHIC provided a great forum to get up to speed on opportunities and headwinds in the market.
    Will WoodworthAssociate, Rockbridge
  • We enjoy the fact that we are full delegates at Big Picture Conference events. As no distinction is made between the buyer and supplier at these events, we participate at all sessions and take advantage of the opportunities to network in between. The exhibition provides valuable face time with all the right people.
    Gordon WilliamsPresident, Gordon R Williams Corp.
  • We have partnered with BPC at this event for many years. This is a great networking opportunity across all facets of the hotel industry.
    Carrie RussellManaging Director & Partner, HVS
  • Words can't express my gratitude for Big Picture Conferences' generosity. So I'll show it through actions, continuing to excel and showing what George Brown and BPC have done and continue to do for aspiring professions such as myself. Thank you so much.
    Richard HowardStudent, George Brown College
  • It was truly great to be involved in the conference and there were many significant learning opportunities.
