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!
  • I enjoyed the face to face connection with everyone at WCLC. Better feedback in person. It may only be for 5 minutes but it is a connection that you can work on from a distance.
    Geoffrey BeckettVice President, Business Development, Garrison Creek Construction
  • It was truly great to be involved in the conference and there were many significant learning opportunities.
    Jun Colin CampbellHotel and Food Administration Program, University of Guelph
  • CHIC provides a great opportunity to meet with and showcase our products to a great number of representatives from the hospitality industry.
    Sung LeeNational Manager, Samsung Electronics Canada
  • BPC events provide a lot of opportunity for networking, good speakers and moderators that were able to pull together great questions. Overall very purposeful events.
    Darryl SamAssistant Vice President, Specialty Finance, CIT Financial
  • CHIC provides us with an opportunity to spend time with senior representatives and owners within the market we are growing. Our customers are very busy executives and having even a few short minutes with them in our booth was beneficial. We will continue to participate going forward.
    Paul IrelandVice President, Sales & Marketing, AJM Solutions Group Inc.
  • We have happily participated at all Big Picture Conference events since 2011, in Toronto and Vancouver. Our experience has helped us to grow our business with all the movers and shakers of hospitality.
