HAC was a worthwhile learning experience…a golden opportunity to network with the top echelon of the hotel industry and many hospitality related experts.

~Nicholas Carson, Director, Tourism Industry Association of Nova Scotia

WCHRIC (now WCLC) is a well-organized event shared by those with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the room. I thought there was a great balance of diverse backgrounds in the speakers chosen, which offered different expertise, opinions and viewpoints. The calibre of the people at the conference was the highlight for me. I appreciated the built in networking time.

~ Aleksa Mrdjenovich, President, Nova Hotels

We at B.L.T. Construction Services Inc. have been a proud sponsor of the CRIS conference for 6 consecutive years. Each year, we find conference more informative, always yielding great networking opportunities with the key players in the industry.  In short, for anyone in the hospitality industry, this conference is a must.
