EDMONTON ADVANTAGE FUNDING PROGRAM

On behalf of the Edmonton Tourism and our industry partners it is our pleasure to invite the IPS Annual Conference to Edmonton. We understand the value your program brings to a destination and we also understand that you are looking for a destination that can allow your program to grow.

Our single most significant contribution is the Edmonton Advantage

This industry driven funding mechanism is administered by Edmonton Tourism and designed to attract V.I.P. organizations such as your Conference. Given the expected impact of your annual event this enhancement would be substantial in nature. The Edmonton Advantage goes directly to your organization or can be applied to offset meeting costs at the Shaw Conference Centre. This will then allow your group to focus your budget in other areas of your event. Based on the proposals from within this document and the overall economic impact the following sliding scale demonstrates:

SHAW CONFERENCE CENTRE RENTAL REBATE = $32,989.72 MAXIMUM ADDITIONAL SPONSORSHIP AMOUNT= $91742.26

* Please note this grid is an estimate for 2020. A minimum of two proposed hotels must be used and a minimum of 650 room nights must be produced to qualify for this incentive
